In the next academic year, the Utrecht Law School is starting a new master LLM programme. The programme focuses on the role of criminal justice systems in a Europeanized and internationalized legal environment, including enforcement and applicable human rights and constitutional standards. The content focuses on the following:

  • The constitutional foundations for criminal justice in a Europeanized setting, including the fundamental rights dimension and the harmonisation of defence rights and safeguards;
  • The effects and impact of EU law on domestic criminal justice and its relationship with administrative law enforcement in such areas as anti-money laundering, financial fraud, and other serious cross-border offences;
  • The different legal regimes for transnational enforcement cooperation and the exchange of information, including the European Arrest Warrant and the European Investigation Order;
  • The relationships between national criminal justice and EU authorities such as Eurojust and the European Public Prosecutor’s Office;
  • The relationship between European criminal justice and its global context (external dimension).

For details about the programme, its objectives, career prospects, admission and application procedures, etc., visit the website on the master programme.
