Program Description:
Hague Logo Typeface
Students on this program will study in the historic Dutch city that has become a modern symbol in the search for global justice. They will explore first-hand how international courts confront a range of global problems; meeting with judges, advocates, and academic specialists for a broad survey of the international legal process. Students will live in the adjacent university town of Leiden and will have direct access to major tribunals sitting in The Hague; including the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the Peace Palace, and special war-crimes tribunals. They will also connect with research centers working on a variety of global issues; including ethnic violence, national and regional reconciliation, economic development, environmental policy, social rights, and responsive governance. The curriculum for the Brandeis Summer Program combines coursework, field visits to international courts, and interactive workshops with court advocates and international lawyers. 
The Hague
Seminars lay the groundwork for understanding the origins and purposes of the tribunals, while workshops provide an intensive experience with the International Criminal Court. 
The Hague Summer Program is sponsored by the Office of Study Abroad and the Office of Global Affairs. The Program is a collaboration between Brandeis University and the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies at Leiden University.

Application Process: 
Students can apply directly through the Office of Study Abroad for admission into the Brandeis in The Hague program. Applications are reviewed on a rolling admissions basis until the closing deadline. Students are encouraged to apply well before the admissions deadline. Qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, so applying early is to everyone’s advantage. Applications will be reviewed up until the deadline, provided spaces are still available. 
Non-Brandeis students are encouraged to check with their home institution regarding study abroad policies and procedures. 
Scholarship Details: 
Need-based travel grants are available. There are limited funds so the amount of aid an individual will receive will depend on the number of students requesting aid. Typically a travel grant will be awarded for up to $500 per individual. Students interested in learning more about (other) study abroad scholarship opportunities should visit the scholarship section of the Brandeis study abroad website.

“This program furthered my knowledge and understanding of international law. My time spent in The Hague was definitely one of the greatest and most inspiring times of my life. I will never forget what I have learned during my time abroad both academically and culturally.”
