The International Nuremberg Principles Academy offers an annual two-week intensive summer course for young professionals. Since 2019, in addition to the anglophone edition of the Nuremberg Summer Academy for Young Professionals, the Nuremberg Academy offers a francophone edition, the Académie d’été de Nuremberg pour jeunes professionnel.le.s.
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. The programme brings together young lawyers, prosecutors, judges, academics and other legal professionals from conflict and post-conflict countries with the aim to develop 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.
The Nuremberg Summer Academy may be organised in person or online. When it is organised in person, it provides participants with 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.
Applications to the programme usually open in late November or early December each year.
