International Criminal Law: From Theory to Practice
-- Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course has been postponed to 2021 --
This summer school enables students and professionals from all over the world to engage in discussions on the prospects and challenges of international criminal justice. It combines the unique location in The Hague, the international City of Peace and Justice, with the academic expertise of Leiden Law School.
Students will be immersed in the field through lectures and exercises dealing with all aspects of International Criminal Law, from substantive crimes (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression) to complementarity, modes of liability, the rights of the accused and the role of victims. Throughout the two weeks, the participants will explore the City of Peace and Justice and will visit a number of international institutions, such as the International Criminal Court.
This course offers a unique opportunity to learn from influential and well-known academics from Leiden University and practitioners from the International Courts and Tribunals in The Hague. You will gain first-hand knowledge on international criminal law in the heart of the International City of Peace and Justice. The course also offers plenty of opportunities to network with fellow students and practitioners from all over the world. And last but not least, The Hague is a wonderful place to stay!
This summer school is aimed at law students (who have completed at least one year of their degree), young graduates and professionals with a background in law.
The participants will receive a certificate of participation after completion of the programme.
Furthermore, we can issue a statement regarding the amount of ECTS credits we would assign to this course, based on the number of hours in class, preparation time and assignments, keeping in mind that 1 ECTS equals 28 hours of study. Your university can then evaluate this course and decide whether they will indeed award ECTS credits.
