(Online LLM) L.L.M in International Law and Treaty Law

 

In brief:

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. The total tuition for this program (current cycle) is:

USD Zone: USD 850 (Admission Fee) + (26 credits) x 145 (per credit) = USD 4,620

Euro Zone: USD 720 (Admission Fee) + (26 credits) x 115 (per credit) = € 3,710

Partial scholarships are available ECOWAS residents.

Academic Presentation:

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:

  • International organizations
  • European Law
  • Maritime law
  • Treaty drafting and application

Note: This degree program is distance-based only and requires fluency in the English language. Knowledge of another major international language, especially French, is highly recommended.

Admission Requirements:

Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree or its international equivalent in a relevant field, issued by an institution that is properly recognized by the national authority (Ministry of Higher Education or similar body).

Government-sponsored applicants (who are already government staff) may be admitted without a Bachelor’s degree if their level of education and experience is deemed sufficient. EUCLID may require these participants to complete bridge courses prior to enrolling in the program.

Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required and will be tested.

Students are expected to be in position to dedicate 10 to 15 effective hours of study on a weekly basis.
