Directed Studies and Diploma Exam

The Directed Studies are conducted under the guidance of a professor. They are specifically designed for advanced attendees, who wish to prepare themselves for the Diploma Exam of the Academy, or who are simply interested in participating in seminars delving more deeply into questions of public or private international law without sitting for the Exam. The latter consists of a five-hour written test on a subject that has both theoretical and practical aspects. Candidates who pass this first part of the Exam, then have to sit an oral Exam.
