LLM IN INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL LAW

The LLM in International Criminal Law provides students with an advanced understanding of the history, structures, law and practice of the various international criminal tribunals and the International Criminal Court. Students will gain an in-depth knowledge of international criminal law, its component crimes, substantive law and key procedures. Students will also develop an analytical approach to the relationship between other accountability mechanisms, such as truth commissions.

LLM IN INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENT AND LAND USE LAW

The central aim of the LLM program in International Environmental Law and Land Use is to train a new style of international environment lawyers and environmental activists by offering a broad and deep understanding of relevant issues and supporting the development of academic skills through the analysis of such issues. The LLM is designed to provide you with specialist knowledge of the legal issues and techniques related to environmental protection and the management of natural resources, with a focus on climate change.

Engage With a Remarkable University Community at UNILAK

Each year, we enroll a diverse class of graduate students whose experience spans all areas of the legal profession—including private practice, academia, the judiciary, public service, human rights advocacy, and NGOs. As an LL.M. student, you will form study groups with these accomplished scholars who are as intellectually curious as you are; participate in clinics, moot courts, journals, and pro bono work alongside driven peers; and build lifelong friendships and connections through student organizations at the Faculty of Law.
