Overview
IES-Amsterdam: Law & Criminology

According to Lonely Planet, 'Amsterdam combines a huge case of big city exuberance with small-town manageability. Amsterdam's quintessential Dutchness shines through: the 17th- and 18th-century architecture, the fleets of bicycles, the tree-lined canals and scattered parks all contribute to the mood of the city.' The Dutch are known for their openness and tolerance which has helped give Amsterdam its reputation as a place for experimentation in the arts, social welfare, environmentalism, and lifestyles.

Because Dutch is not frequently studied outside of the Netherlands, mastery of English is a core feature of Dutch education and many people in Amsterdam speak fluent, colloquial English. Dutch universities have sought to attract international students by offering courses taught in English in a variety of fields. This program offers students the chance to integrate academically and culturally with the Dutch people without prior study of the Dutch language.

This program is especially great for students considering law school as it gives you a glimpse of your future in law school and what sort of legal career you may enjoy. Learn about comparative law in an international context while studying abroad in the Netherlands, where local students start their law degrees at the Bachelor's level.
