Each year, a summer school is held in Berlin for two weeks during the South African winter break in June and July. It is hosted by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and offers an interdisciplinary forum for students in the programme, students of Humboldt-Universität and legal experts. The students participate in lectures and workshops offered by distinguished practitioners and academics. Click here to see a list of lectures presented during the summer school. In addition, students visit memorials relevant both to German history and to the development of international criminal law. Last but definitely not least, students get the chance to enjoy the many other possibilities that Berlin offers.
By now, each year the summer school has been inaugurated with a speach of a judge of the international Criminal Court. The summer school 2010 was opened by President Judge of the ICC Prof Sang Hyun Song.
