Master of International Criminal Law and Justice (MICLJ)

Master of Laws in International Criminal Law and Justice (LL.M.)

The globalization of commerce, terrorism, human rights and criminal law over the last thirty years has produced an international criminal law landscape far broader in scope and with a far more complex array of institutional players. 

Nations are expanding the reach of their domestic criminal statutes, the International Criminal Court and Special Tribunals have been created, and U.N. conventions, with bi- and multi-lateral treaties, are proliferating. The University of New Hampshire School of Law’s program International Criminal Law & Justice (ICLJ) addresses these developments.

The program is ideal for practicing lawyers, professionals, students and scholars in diplomatic, criminal justice, military and law enforcement communities around the world. The program incorporates transnational law courses—focused on domestic crimes with international implication that cover issues such as intellectual property crimes, international white-collar crime and cybercrime.

Other courses will cover the criminal prosecution of individuals, either domestically or internationally, for human rights violations like human trafficking or genocide, and the complex area of domestic and international counter-terrorism efforts. 

With its international perspective, the curriculum is designed for a multi-national audience.
