Here you'll read more about what education will look like in the academic year 2020-2021. It will be a mix of online and on campus education. We would like to explain which educational activities will take place specifically for your Master’s programme in the first semester and in particular in block 1.
For the LLM in International Trade and Investment Law 2020-2021, the two weekly lectures in the compulsory course Principles and Foundations of International Law (PFIL) will be on campus, but will also be recorded and be made available immediately after the lecture. Students International Trade and Investment Law (ITIL) can in principle attend one of the two weekly lectures on campus. It may be necessary to impose restrictions if more students than expected are present in Amsterdam; you will therefore be asked to register if you want to attend the lectures. The weekly tutorials in PFIL are all online, students are expected to join in the Zoom tutorial with their video on and with functioning audio.
The weekly lecture in the compulsory course Foundations of International Economic Law will be fully online. To see if lectures in elective courses are offered online or on campus, please take a look at the provisional timetables.
Lectures in the Amsterdam Law Clinics will also take place on campus (with compulsory streaming for those not able to attend in person). Whether the teams will meet online or on campus to work on their projects will depend on the whereabouts of the different team members. The same is true for the moot courts.
All on campus teaching will take place in rooms and lecture halls that allow 1.5 m distance between students. Needless to say, the on campus arrangements are subject to the Covid-19 situation in the Netherlands. Should the government impose further restrictions to secure health and safety, it may be necessary to move (some) education that is planned on campus, online.
