For the final round of #MeetOurStudents, we are proud to present Ahmed Abofoul, Alessandra Costa e Silva, Dorine Nauleau, Icarus Chan and Juliette Wangen!

These Leiden Law School LL.M. (adv.) candidates showed great commitment to the IHL Clinic work and produced excellent research on several legal issues with regards to the State of Palestine.

Meet our IHL Clinic students who assisted Dr. Robert Heinsch in the submission of an amicus curiae brief to the Special Jurisdiction for Peace in Colombia!

Fernanda García Pinto, Lígia Monaco and Andrés Morales analysed several legal issues, including the meaning and scope of war crimes in international law and the Colombian Criminal Code, the possibility of amnesties for IHL violations, and the status and treatment of police forces in non-international armed conflicts.

It was a pleasure to work with these talented students, we are grateful to their commitment to the IHL Clinic, and wish them all the best for their careers after they graduate with an adv. LL.M. from Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies, Leiden Law School!

Very interesting traineeship position at the ICRC....

Continuing to present our IHL Clinic students, this week we are pleased to introduce our Strategic Litigation Team.

During the Spring 2020 semester, our IHL Clinic students further developed the KGF’s Strategic Litigation project initially launched in Spring 2019. They conducted extensive research aiming to identify countries that allow for the prosecution of international crimes under universal jurisdiction. The team’s hard work resulted in a high-quality report in which they have analysed different domestic legal systems and international crimes with potential to be prosecuted under universal jurisdiction. The report also identifies possible challenges to prosecute and includes recommendations for further research.

We are immensely proud of our students who were able to continue their work with excellence despite the recent challenges due to the Corona virus, and we are very grateful for their commitment to this important project.
