Our LLM in International Law, led by Profs. Klamberg, Petman and Wrange, will kick off for the first time in the autumn 2021. Yet several of the courses included in the programme - "Human Rights in a Global Perspective", "International Criminal Law" and "International Law and the Global Economy" - have all been running at SULaw for several years. These highly popular courses are offered to Swedish students as electives on the Swedish law programme, and are also available to foreign exchange students from SULaw's partner universities. 

Simran, an exchange student from New Zealand, took the course "International Criminal Law" in the autumn 2020:

"The course was intensive and tested my time management and organizational skills. It was extremely rewarding and looking back; I am very proud of all I have accomplished over the three month period. As there was only a limited number of students enrolled in the course, and participation at each lecture/seminar was mandatory, it was not long before we all became well-acquainted and got to know one another. The group assignments allowed me to work with students from Australia and Sweden, which provided a different perspective/outlook towards the law – especially a civil law perspective that contrasts with our common law system in New Zealand. Through this, I have made a number of lifelong friends who anticipate getting together and pursuing our Master’s degrees in the near future. One of the most memorable parts of the course was the guest lectures by the renowned International Criminal Court Judge Christine van den Wyngaert who provided an insight into her profession and a few words of wisdom for us aspiring lawyers."

(Simran's full piece on his studies at SULaw can be found on the University of Auckland's international blog)

Tanja, an exchange student from Germany recently contacted Pr. Klamberg, after taking that same course in the autumn 2012 : 

"The course had quite an impact on me. After my return to Germany I decided to focus on ICL in the further course of my studies and later began to work for Prof. Werle at Humboldt University in Berlin. I recently completed my dissertation on reproductive violence and international criminal law, which will be published this spring. The teaching was inspiring, particularly by way of the moot court, it was certainly one of the best experiences of my studies."
