The 2016 International Law Fellowship Program is a fully funded conference and international opportunity for foreign nationals. Applications are currently being accepted for this fully funded program.
The United Nations International Law Fellowship Programme is organized by the Codification Division of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs. The Fellowship Programme provides high-quality training by prominent international law scholars and practitioners on a broad range of core subjects of international law. That said, the interactive nature of the training will allow the participants to share personal experiences and exchange ideas, which will promote greater understanding and cooperation on a wide range of issues affecting contemporary law.
This fellowship program will enable qualified professionals, particularly government officials and teachers of international law from within developing countries and countries with emerging economies, to broaden their perspectives on knowledge of international law and of the legal work of the United Nations and its affiliate bodies.
The Fellowship Programme accommodates up to 21 participants.
The Fellowship Programme consists of an annual six-week summer course at the Peace Palace in The Hague, the Netherlands. The participants will participate in various lectures and seminars in international law organized by the Codification Division as well as the public international law session at The Hague Academy of International Law.
The lectures and seminars organized by the Codification Division will be given by prominent and highly placed international law scholars and practitioners from different regions and legal backgrounds.
