BIICL Short Courses Spring 2024: Now Open for Booking!
The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) has launched its programme of short courses for spring 2024. The programme will cover public international law, climate change law, international trade law and the context of the war in Ukraine. Additional courses for the autumn will also be available to book shortly. More information can be found on the BIICL website.
BIICL training combines world leading research with an applied perspective. Each course is convened and taught by experts from BIICL’s own team in collaboration with external partners, combining academic expertise with practical experience in these fields of law. They are designed to enable legal practitioners, policy makers, government officials, civil society, organisations, academics and students to gain expert insights and to deepen their knowledge in areas of international law.
Places on BIICL’s courses are limited to ensure a highly interactive experience. Some courses are offered virtually whilst some are offered in hybrid format facilitating participation from anywhere in the world.
Discounts for group bookings and for individual members of BIICL are available. A limited number of scholarships are available to enable participation from individuals from communities that are currently under-represented in the legal community and for whom participation in the courses would otherwise not be possible.
