The International Nuremberg Principles Academy offers an annual a two-week intensive summer course for young professionals. Since 2019, in addition to the Summer Academy for Young Professionals in English language, the Nuremberg Academy offers also an edition in French, the Académie d’été de Nuremberg pour jeunes professionnels. It honors the legacy of Nuremberg being the birthplace of modern international criminal law by bringing together young professionals, developing international understanding on the essence of this branch of law, and thus promoting sustainable peace through justice and supporting the fight against impunity.
The Nuremberg Summer Academy provides young lawyers, prosecutors, judges, and academics from different conflict and post-conflict countries with an invaluable opportunity and stimulating learning experience to acquire or deepen their knowledge of substantive and procedural aspects of international criminal law. Guided by leading international experts and practitioners, the participants acquire practical knowledge on the investigation, prosecution, and adjudication of core international crimes. They also have the opportunity to participate in study visits to the historic Courtroom 600 of the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, the Memorium Nuremberg Trials, the Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds, and the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site.
The Nuremberg Summer Academy is a flagship program of the Nuremberg Academy, fulfilling its mandate to promote tailored training programs aimed at building capacities and strengthening institutions at the national level to investigate and prosecute international crimes.
