Definitely worthwhile -- I gained a very strong understanding of the origins and theories surrounding international criminal law and also a wide, diverse view of how the international courts operate/international organizations in general (we also visited NATO, European Parliament, the ICJ/PCA, etc.) - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Yes, it exposed me to other cultures and gave me enough time to think critically of them. I now not only know that America is the greatest nation in the world, I can tell you why. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

About

Led by Brandeis Legal Studies Professor Richard Gaskins, students have incredible access to those that work intimately with Balkan genocide, child soldiers, gender violence, and other war crimes, exploring how international law uses criminal justice in the interests of peace. Students also visit the historic Peace Palace to learn about the settlement of disputes involving sovereign nations, in both the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration.

Students completing these programs have enriched their studies both academically and personally. Their immersion in court cases and justice debates has given them a fresh sense of direction within their chosen major, whether it is politics, history, economics, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, or area studies. Students have also learned about growing career opportunities in law, human rights, international development, and field research.
