    ’One of the highlights of my visit to the Hague for the Public International Law session of the Hague Academy of International Law was the Peace Palace Library. I was truly impressed by its collection of books and journals related to my areas of research – customary international law and law on maritime delimitation – and I consider it difficult to impress a holder of Cambridge LL.M. degree in international law. Staff are very kind and helpful, and the system for the borrowing of books works perfectly. I really hope that I will have the opportunity to visit this library again and do my PhD research here’.
