Applications for the 2021-2022 Judicial Fellowship Programme of the International Court of Justice are open.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) invites applications for the 2021-2022 Judicial Fellowship Programme.
The Programme, established in 1999, enables law graduates to gain experience working at the International Court of Justice. It aims to further their understanding of international law and the Court’s procedures by involving them in the work of the Court and allowing them to build on their experience under the supervision of a judge.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 14 February 2021 and the final decision is expected to be reached in April 2021. Nominating universities will be notified accordingly.
Submission of applications and selection of candidates
While it is possible to nominate a single candidate, the Court encourages universities to propose more than one. Universities are also strongly encouraged to limit nominations to candidates who have excellent results in their law studies and who have demonstrated an interest in international law through their studies, publications or work experience. The Court does not accept applications from individuals
