THE UNITED Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is now accepting applications for the July-August 2008 Session of the United Nations International Law Fellowship Programme.
The 2008 Fellowship Programme will be conducted in English. It will take place in the Peace Palace in The Hague, Netherlands from July 7 to August 15.
The fellowships are intended to help qualified professionals – particularly mid-level government officials and young university teachers of international law, from the least-developed and developing countries, and countries with economies in transition – learn more about international law and the legal work of the United Nations and its associated bodies.
Candidates must be between 24 and 40 years old, and fluent in written and spoken English. They should be law graduates with practical experience in the field of international law acquired by working for a public or private organisation or a university. The programme covers up to 24 fellowships, including travel costs in economy class, medical insurance, training material and the registration fee for The Hague Academy of International Law. Participants will also receive a stipend to cover their living expenses. Accommodation will be provided by the programme.
Deadline for applications: January 18
