02 May Events and Announcements: 1 May 2022
The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) provides training that combines world leading research with an applied perspective. Our courses are designed to enable legal practitioners, government officials, students, academics, and civil society organisations to gain expert insights and to deepen their knowledge in areas of international law.
During summer 2022, BIICL will offer the popular Law of the Sea course alongside two new programmes: the European Rule of Law Toolbox and a new course on Foundation of Public International Law. Each course is convened and taught by international experts from BIICL’s own team in collaboration with external partners, combining academic expertise with practical experience in these fields of law.
The following courses are now available for booking:
- Short Course: European Rule of Law Toolbox starts 11 May 2022
- Short Course: Law of the Sea starts 13 June 2022
- Intensive Course: Foundations of Public International Law 20-21 June 2022
- Short Course: Public International Law in Practice starts 15 September 2022
The virtual course format consists of a series of sessions in which live teaching is provided via Zoom. Places are limited to ensure a highly interactive experience. In person courses are hosted at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law in London. A limited number of scholarships are available for each course to provide financial assistance for people who cannot otherwise participate in the courses, and for people from communities that are currently under-represented in the legal community. Discounts for group bookings and individual members of BIICL are also available.
