LLM - International Criminal Law
Why an LLM in International Criminal Law?
Taught by leading experts in the field, the one-year Case Western Reserve University LLM in International Criminal Law provides students who hold a degree in law with an in-depth knowledge of international criminal law and procedure, international humanitarian law, and national security law, and will equip them to practice international criminal law before international tribunals or national courts.
To receive the degree, LLM students must take a total of 24 credit hours in international criminal law-related courses at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. The 3-credit “International Criminal Law and Procedure” course, taught each fall by Professor Michael Scharf, is required.
