Imagine a peaceful, prosperous and environmentally sustainable world society respecting human dignity and social justice. Would this be possible without international law? Do not dream, make it work! Allow yourself to become a good international lawyer by getting to know the achievements and shortcomings or international law today. Develop ideas about how to improve international law and acquire skills to advise your government, an international organization, a company, individuals, or groups.
The Public International Law programme from the University of Groningen offers some flexibility in the range of courses that can be chosen. Students can opt for a peace & security, an economic/environmental or a dispute settlement profile. The master's thesis allows you to spend considerable time to study a topic of your choice under the supervision of an experienced staff member.
There are opportunities in legal departments of international organizations or foreign ministries, but also in many national governmental institutions and ministries, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, internationally operating enterprises and academic institutions, be it in the field of trade & investment, environment, energy, or human rights. In larger law firms and legal companies expertise in public international law is relevant for international cases and arbitrations.
