2024 Advanced Course on International Criminal Law

Advanced Course@4x

These programmes are designed to help participants better understand both the theory and practice of international law through an in-depth study of the themes that underpin a specifically chosen subject. They are primarily intended for professionals, practitioners who seek to deepen their knowledge or to discover new insights, and for advanced researchers. The aim of these courses is therefore to deal with topical issues, while putting into perspective more specific questions that need to be addressed.

2024 Advanced Course on International Criminal Law
Session held from 21 to 25 October 2024, directed by Prof. Muriel Ubeda-Saillard

The building of a global system of international criminal justice relies on the mastery of the specificities of international criminal law by all actors involved in the fight against impunity, and in particular on their awareness of the hybridity and autonomy of this law in relation to national criminal law. That is why the Independent Experts and the Monitoring Committee have attached particular importance to the training of judges, lawyers and jurists who will be working with the International Criminal Court.

In view of these various considerations, The Hague Academy of International Law has decided to offer an enhanced training course in International Criminal Law, from 21 to 25 October 2024, which will be delivered in French to an audience essentially constituted, as far as on-site attendance is concerned, of professionals (judges, lawyers, legal advisers from various institutions, investigators, etc.) wishing to consolidate their technical knowledge in this discipline. However, online participation in the morning lectures is open to all participants – professionals and students alike – who have registered for the programme.

On-site participation: Registration fee: €800. Priority for participation in the on-site programme will be given to practitioners (national or international civil servants, lawyers, professors) of international criminal law and to advanced students in this field.
A certificate of attendance will be issued at the end of the programme. 

Online participation: Registration fee: €250. As the number of places for online participation is unlimited, the Academy will not make any selection.
A certificate of enrolment will be issued at the end of the online courses.

Simultaneous interpretation and live broadcasts will be available every morning of the advanced course, except on the first Monday when they will be available all day. For participants following in different time zones, video recordings will be available on replay in the e-learning environment for a period of 5 weeks after the course has ended.

No scholarships are available for this programme.

Registrations are open from 20th June to 1st September 2024.
