The Hague Academy of International Law

  • Special Academy Courses: European Union Law and Comparative Law

    July 7, 2016

    This year, for the first time, The Hague Academy will organize special short courses on European Union Law and Comparative Law, exclusively for the students of the Private Law Session. The Lectures of the Private International Law Courses often refer to EU Law. This is often a source of difficulty for those Academy attendees who come from non-European countries or from countries where this field of law isn’t taught. To help the Private Law Students better follow the courses of the Private International Law period, the Academy has decided to offer a short ‘crash-course’ at the start of the period on the fundamentals of European Union Law. This course is scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 31st, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It will be dispensed in English and simultaneously translated in French.

  • The Hague Academy 2016

    July 7, 2016

    The Hague Academy of International Law is an institution that is well known for its summer courses. These courses have been given since 1923 to several thousands of young international lawyers. As years have gone by, attendance has become almost a rite of passage for any student of public or private international law, who can hardly feel fully-fledged without having spent some time at this temple of international law. The Academy’s renown is due to the quality of its teachers, for whom an invitation to give a course is a mark of recognition of their eminence and fame.

    A Tribute to Steven van Hoogstraten by Hope Elizabeth May

    January 29, 2016

    A farewell tribute to Steven van Hoogstraten by Professor Hope Elizabeth May, Central Michigan University: “Mr. van Hoogstraten has used and built upon the symbolic history of the Peace Palace at a crucial time in the development of the Temple of Law and International Ethics. Steven van Hoogstraten has helped us to ‘go on with the mighty work’ in a way that reminds us that two important stones in this Temple are public education and involvement, and an historic narrative of the Peace through Law movement that duly recognizes the labors of both men and women.”
