International Defence Counsel Training Programme
We are pleased to launch the International Defence Counsel Training Programme, organized by the Siracusa International Institute for Criminal Justice and Human Rights (the new public name adopted by the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences – ISISC) with the Association internationale de Droit Pénal (AIDP), the Association Internationale des Avocats (UIA), the International Criminal Justice Consortium (ICJC), and the Italian Scuola Superiore dell’Avvocatura (SSA).
It is the first multifaceted and globally-oriented Programme specifically designed for defence lawyers, in-house counsel and jurists dealing with cases related to international crimes before national and international jurisdictions, including crimes of a transnational nature. The Programme includes various modules of training in relevant jurisprudence of international courts, procedural elements of international proceedings, and the substantive and procedural aspects of international legal cooperation in cases related to international and transnational crimes.
The Programme has an outstanding Academia of world-renowned jurists and experts, whose prestige ensures that this Programme is truly of excellence.
Details on the Programme, its Academia and the calendar of training Courses can be found at its dedicated website:
Applications are open for the Course on Fundamentals on Defence Rights before International Courts, which will be held from 15-19 May 2017 at the Siracusa Institute’s headquarters in Siracusa, Italy (a UNESCO world heritage site). Due to limited available positions in the Course, early registration is highly recommended.
