About

This two-week seminar allows students to spend extended periods observing actual proceedings of international criminal proceedings at such courts as the International Criminal Court and International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. After the observations, procedure and trial tactics are analyzed, giving students an opportunity of a lifetime to learn about criminal justice, trial advocacy, and comparative and international law from the judges, the prosecutors, and defense lawyers who are actually working on these cases. The Hague is the seat of the government of the Netherlands and the site of major organizations involved in international criminal jurisprudence, including the International Criminal Court and the World Court, as well as other major organizations such as the Peace Palace, The Hague Academy of International Law, and many others. The Hague has been called the “legal capital of the world.” Santa Clara’s program will include visits to such sites. Students will also visit the International Court of Justice. Participants are required to write a paper reflecting on their experience.
