  • 2017 Programme The Hague Academy Summer Courses

    May 30, 2017

    The Summer Courses are organized in two periods of 3 weeks each, one focusing on Public International Law and one on Private International Law. Since the very outset in 1923 thousands of students from over 100 nationalities have been able to attend them. Many alumni, having thus had the opportunity to meet “great names” in the field of international Law, have subsequently gone on to become themselves well-known academics, lawyers or diplomats, among other occupations. The courses consist of lectures on general or special topics and are subsequently published in the Collected Courses series, of which there are currently over 380 volumes, ranking among the most important encyclopaedic publications on public and private international law.

    September 7, 2016

After living in a big city my whole life where every second counts, I remember feeling confused about lawyers from all over the world living in a such a calm and peaceful place.

The Hague is definitely a city that stands out, a city of great ideas and a bright future, a city that unites people from all over the world, who are progressive and aspire to inspire others, not only with their words and papers, but also with their deeds.
