The European Criminal Justice in a Global Context programme at Utrecht University is an opportunity to dive deeper into this stimulating area of debate. A debate which is at the core of any criminal justice system.
It deepens your knowledge on EU criminal law. It analyses the interactions with the criminal justice systems of other EU Member States or third countries under new, innovative forms of enforcement cooperation. It examines the relationships of national criminal justice with the sharply increasing number of EU enforcement agencies, like the European Central Bank. This unique and innovative programme provides an inspiring intellectual challenge, as well as the platform for a rewarding legal career at a national, European or international level.
There is a growing demand, both in the governmental and wider public sector as well as private practice, for talented law graduates who are capable of looking beyond the boundaries of national criminal law and policy. The unique knowledge and skillset developed through the LLM in European Criminal Justice programme creates a path for graduates to work in diverse and wide-ranging areas of law and/or administration. You could find yourself working in legal practice at a national or European level, or in a wider international context.
