On 6 July 2024 IILAT will be holding a one day advocacy training for lawyers practicing at international criminal tribunals. The training will take place at the International Criminal Court in The Hague and is designed for advocates working for the Prosecution, Defence and Victims Legal Representative teams. Lawyers with limited experience in examining and cross-examining witnesses are particularly encouraged to apply. 

The advocacy training will be delivered by: Judge Joanna Korner KC (ICC Judge), Judge Beti Hohler (ICC Judge); Leonie von Braun (Senior Trial Attorney); Andrew T. Cayley CMG KC (Principal Trial Lawyer); and Kamran Choudhry (Trial Lawyer). 

Participants will practise the skills of witness examination, cross-examination and delivering a closing statement, using a fictional case study. 

This training is an excellent opportunity to improve your advocacy skills with the help of some of the most experienced and respected advocates in the field of international criminal law and interact with fellow legal professionals from different institutions in The Hague. 

Participation is limited to only 16 participants. IILAT will aim to ensure balanced gender and geographical representation as well as make sure that participants from different institutions have an opportunity to participate. The training is free of charge. 

The programme of the training will run the whole day on Saturday, 6 July 2024. Upon completion, participants will receive the IILAT certificate of attendance.
