Masters of Science in Law and Regulations. Criminology and Criminal Justice is a one-year Master’s at the renowned Leiden Law School at Leiden University. The programme focuses on criminology, criminal law and their mutual relationship. It is unique in its cross-national and multidisciplinary scope. Criminology and Criminal Justice This programme focuses on legitimacy and effectiveness of criminal justice systems around the world and the challenges they face in a globalising world.

Transnational crimes like human trafficking and terrorism increasingly demand coordinated criminal justice responses on a European or international level. The comparative study of criminal justice institutions therefore includes the study of supra-national bodies. Comparative and multidisciplinary perspectives The Criminal Justice Master distinguishes itself by its international comparative perspective, analysing criminal justice systems, legislation and policies in common law and civil law countries. The programme is unique both in its comparative and multidisciplinary focus. Students from all over the world with different backgrounds, such as Criminology, Social sciences, Law, Political sciences, and Philosophy, critically engage themselves with important questions in small-scale groups. Leiden Law School is located in two beautifully renovated national monuments in the historic heart of the medieval city of Leiden.
