What We Do

In a highly competitive field with high stakes, there is a need for legal practitioners to not only possess an in-depth knowledge of law and procedure but also have excellent advocacy skills.


IILAT provides advocacy training to legal practitioners and judges working, or aspiring to work at international criminal courts and other tribunals. We also provide training to those practicing in national jurisdictions. Working closely with our clients, IILAT experts plan, develop and organise bespoke training to meet specific needs.

How We Do It

IILAT helps legal practitioners worldwide to learn and improve their advocacy skills by following a structured method of teaching known as the 'Hampel' method, widely considered the leading method of advocacy training. It guarantees that we deliver results.

We design and deliver introductory trainings for those just starting out. For established practitioners, we deliver specialist courses on a wide range of topics (including examinations of vulnerable witnesses and expert witnesses, and remote advocacy) specifically designed for skilled legal practitioners.  

We organize public lectures and events where renowned practitioners share their experiences and discuss topics of interest in public international law, international criminal law, international human rights law, international humanitarian law, tribunal and court procedure, and transitional justice.

We work with experts from various legal and cultural backgrounds, in French, English and Arabic, to ensure that the training we provide is inclusive and tailored to the needs of the audience.

 

Why We Do It

At IILAT we are convinced that anyone can become a good advocate with the appropriate training and support. We believe society and the rule of law, international justice and human rights benefit from good advocates. 

​For this reason, our ambition is to empower advocates and other legal professionals to move with ease within and between international and national courts.
