About

The Summer Law Program in The Hague offers participants an opportunity to study some of the most important legal issues today in the heart of the international justice community.  The ABA-approved, six-credit summer program includes two three-credit courses: International Criminal Law: In Search of Accountability and International Legal Approaches to Terrorism in the 21st Century. The program was launched in June 2007, with 26 J.D. and LL.M. participants from six universities. It has since been expanded: in 2015, 26 Washington College of Law students and 12 students from other institutions participated.

The Program in The Hague is the product of a unique collaboration between the War Crimes Research Office of American University’s Washington College of Law, established in 1995 to provide specialized legal research assistance to international/ized criminal tribunals, and the T.M.C. Asser Institute, one of the most prominent research institutes of international law in Europe. 

In 1899, the world’s first Peace Conference took place in The Hague; today this city on the North Sea is home to over 150 international legal organizations. Through the Program, participants will have the opportunity to live and learn about key issues in international law among the practitioners, courts, and tribunals that are making history today.
