The programme will focus on subjects such as trade agreements, human rights, taxation, international criminal justice and comparative criminal law. Registration is now open!

Course information

The programme is divided into 2 two-week terms. All courses are taught in English and by faculty members from different legal cultures, exposing participants not only to comparative law studies but also to different teaching methods. 

Target audience

The Institute is aimed at JD students/ LL.B. students who have completed at least one year of law study, students preparing to study for an LLM degree in the United States, advanced law students from all countries. The Institute also welcomes judges, academics, practitioners, and other professionals seeking knowledge of American, international, and comparative law to apply for the programme.

Class size & Study load

Classes will be limited in size in order to facilitate interaction between faculty members and students. Students may enroll in as many as 3 courses and must enroll in the same courses for both terms of the programme. Dutch lawyers may, however, attend a single course for one or both terms.
​Classes take place on weekdays in the mornings and afternoons, and no courses will be offered simultaneously.
