Scholarships for the XLIII Course on International Law Announced

The Course aims to disseminate and promote international law, with a strong emphasis on the Inter-American System and its current agenda.

Dates: October 3 to 21, 2016.

Venue: JW Marriott Rio de Janeiro Hotel, Ave. Atlântica 2600, Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro.

Languages: Spanish and English. There is no simultaneous interpreting for this course.

Certificates: A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to those students who attend at least 90 percent of the classes and pass two exams held over the three weeks of the Course. Students interested in obtaining a Pass Certificate may submit one paper on one of the topics discussed during the Course, within three months of the end thereof, after first submitting a hypothesis and work plan for approval as provided in the guidelines that will be distributed in a timely manner.

How to participate: Due to the high volume of applications we receive each year, and to the fact that we prefer to keep groups small in order to ensure the highest-quality learning experience, all applicants must participate in one of the following selection processes:

a) Scholarships: Every year, the OAS offers a limited number of scholarships for students from its Members States who are interested in attending. To request a Professional Development Scholarship, applicants must follow the procedures set by the Department of Human Development, Education and Employment (follow this link).

b) Self-financed: The Course on International Law is provided free of tuition charges. However, participants must be able to cover their own expenses. To be considered for admission as a self-financed student, the following requirements must be met:

• Formal letter of application: This letter should be addressed to the Department of International Law and must state that (i) you are capable of funding your own participation in the course; and (ii) you will have a valid health insurance policy covering illness and medical emergencies during the Course.

• CV or resumé showing academic and professional background, experience and qualifications.

The above letter and CV must be e-mailed to [email protected] no later than Friday, July 15th. The result of the selection process will be announced to all applicants by late July.

Professors and topics: We are in the process of completing the roster of prestigious professors from the Americas and Europe who will be lecturing over the three-week session. The draft program includes a variety of cutting-edge topics of international law and will be enhanced with new topics and lecturers in the upcoming weeks. The current draft may be viewed here.

Admitted Students: All applicants who are admitted, regardless of whether or not they are scholarship awardees will receive an e-mail from the Department of International Law in which they will be given a user name and password to access the students-only page, which will include class name and schedules, logistical matters, student contact information, recommended hotels and preferred rates, among others.
