This online LLM in international law, representing 26 US credits (40-45 ECTS) is one of the world’s only two LLM degree programs offered by an intergovernmental organization constituted under international law (the other being offered by the European University Institute).
EUCLID (Pôle Universitaire Euclide | Euclid University), an international intergovernmental organization with a university mandate, offers to select students from the general public an external (distance or online) degree program called the EUCLID LLM in International Law and Treaty Law (Master of Laws). As a public non-profit institution, EUCLID is able to offer affordable, low-tuition programs.
This unique LLM degree focuses on the actual practice of States and intergovernmental organizations, rather than the advancement of academic knowledge for its own sake.
This LLM in International Law is meant to be used by professional diplomats working for EUCLID Participating States and can be considered an excellent route to pursue a career within governmental bodies, international law firms, NGOs and international organizations.
Thanks to its low tuition and institutional relationships, it is designed to be of special interest to African students.
Within certain parameters, the EUCLID Online LLM in International Law and Treaty Law is customizable, with elective courses focusing on:
Above: The Law of Treaties (Lecture / Overview)
Applicants should have a relevant Bachelor’s degree (LLB or similar) issued by an institution listed in the UNESCO-IAU handbook/database. Similar or related backgrounds with adequate professional experience may be considered
