Brandeis in The Hague Summer Program
This Program is a collaboration between Brandeis University and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies. Students in this Program will study in The Hague, the historic Dutch city that has become a modern symbol in the search for global justice. They will explore first-hand how international courts confront a range of global problems; meeting with judges, advocates, and academic specialists for a broad survey of the international legal process. Students will live in the adjacent university town of Leiden and will have direct access to major tribunals sitting in The Hague; including the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the Peace Palace, and special war-crimes tribunals. The curriculum for the Brandeis Summer Program combines coursework, field visits to international courts, and interactive workshops with court advocates and international lawyers. Seminars lay the groundwork for understanding the origins and purposes of the tribunals, while workshops provide an intensive experience with the International Criminal Court. The Brandeis University Office of Study Abroad will administer the application and student selection process.
The 2013 Brandeis Summer Program will be held from Monday 3 June to Friday 12 July 2013.
