2014 Summer Course on International Public Law, The Hague Academy of International Law
7 - 25 July 2014, Peace Palace, The Hague
Deadline for application: 1 March 2014
The Summer courses are the principal and best-known activity of the Academy. They are published in the internationally widely known series Collected Courses of the Hague Academy of International Law. The courses take place in the newly completed Academy building located in the Peace Palace in The Hague, are given in English or French, and are simultaneously translated into the other language.

Since the Academy is not a university, it does not have a permanent teaching staff. Rather it calls upon outstanding academics, diplomats and practitioners who come from institutions all over the world. By inviting a wide variety of lecturers, the Curatorium seeks to be as open as possible and to benefit from the widest variety of viewpoints and ideas.

Structure of the course
The course comprises a general part and special courses:

The general course (morning) is given over a period of three weeks and is presented by experienced and recognized lecturers, address in-depth the trends and main features of international law and offers students a comprehensive view of their subject.

Special courses (morning), which last for 5 hours during one week, are devoted to specific questions or single topics, and are given by lecturers who have made these subjects an important part of their research.

Seminar (afternoon): each lecturer conducts a seminar on the subject of his lecture. These seminars allow the students a greater opportunity to ask question or to request additional information on the course and to participate in discussions of particular issues raised during the lectures.

Directed studies (afternoon): for highly qualified students who wish to study for the examination leading to the award of the Academy's diploma (or who wish to participate in intensive seminars on questions of private and public international law, even if they do not intend to sit for the diploma), under the direction of a professor.

At the end of the session, students who have regularly attended all the courses will receive a certificate of attendance.

The full programme can be consulted here.

The Summer Course is open to:

• Candidates who have completed at least 4 years of university studies, which must have included lectures on international law, and who can prove to the Curatorium that they possess sufficient knowledge of the subject.
