If you are eager to take an independent, fresh look at the world and at yourself, let Amsterdam redefine your perspective. This progressive city is defined by its cutting-edge contributions to the arts, business, politics, and social policy, and its importance in the history of Europe and the world.
In Spring '14, enroll in the Pre-Law Certificate Program and take the IES Abroad co-sponsored law seminar plus two or three Universiteit van Amsterdam law-related courses. Designed for students who are interested in attending law school or simply interested in law, this program approaches law from an interdisciplinary perspective to give you a broad understanding of comparative international law. You will receive a UvA-endorsed Pre-Law certificate upon successful completion of the program.
Beginning in Fall '14, the Pre-Law Certificate Program, hosted at the Universiteit van Amsterdam, will transition to a new program called the Law & Criminology Program, hosted at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU). In this new program, you enroll in a core course on law and three to four law- or criminology-related courses at the VU and live on the VU campus.
