Grotius Centre of International Legal Studies,  June 26 -July 7, 2006

During the summer months the Grotius Centre and the Asser Institute organise a Summer School in The Hague for students who want to deepen their knowledge on international criminal law in a brief time period. Professionals from various international legal organisations, such as the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Crimes Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and influential scholars contribute to this course.

The Summer School challenges students to determinedly contemplate international criminal law, to interact with professionals who are connected to international tribunals and to promote the rule of law. The Summer School program is built around the following main themes:

o Introduction to International Criminal Law
o Substantive International Criminal Law
o Procedural International Criminal Law
In addition, there will be exercise sessions on the topics of implementation and cross-examination techniques.

The intended audience are (nearly) graduate law students with a background in international law and with an obvious interest in international criminal law. Places are limited to 30.

The registration fee is € 775, which includes academic and administrative charges, working materials, lunches and drinks during the week, social programme and visits to the ICTY and the ICC. The registration fee does not cover accommodation and dinners. The registration form can found at the bottom of this page.

The registration deadline has been extended to June 2, 2006
