Nuremberg Summer Academy for Young Professionals 2022 (Anglophone)


The Anglophone edition of the Nuremberg Summer Academy for Young Professionals was held online from 1 to 12 August 2022.

Admission to the Nuremberg Summer Academy is competitive. Participants are carefully selected among a pool of several hundred applicants, with a special focus on young professionals from conflict and post-conflict countries. Guided by leading international experts and practitioners, the young professionals gained practical knowledge on the investigation, prosecution and adjudication of core international crimes.

The intensive two-week program was divided into two parts: (1) daily guided self- study time; and (2) live sessions, followed by interactive group discussions. The self-study time and the live sessions provided both an academic and practical perspective of international criminal law, while group discussions strengthened the learned skills in practical assignments.
