Participating Georgetown students may enroll in classes in one of Amsterdam Law School's English Language LLM programs. This includes programs in European Private Law, International Criminal Law, and International and European Law. Course offerings for Fall 2016 will be made available in July. The current year's course offerings are available for review through Amsterdam's online course catalog. Participants in this program who wish to receive credit for any course outside of the three programs listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs via email to request approval. Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses not expressly approved by OTP.
Students may register for the equivalent of up to 14 Georgetown credits. Amsterdam uses the ECTS credit system; two ECTS credits equal one Georgetown credit.
