Earlier this month eighteen students from the LLM in International Law programme at Edinburgh Law School took part in a four day visit to the International Court of Justice at The Hague.

As part of their visit the group met with Judge Keith, who discussed the workings of the International Court of Justice and analysed some of the current challenges that faced the Court.  The students also travelled to the new Europol Headquarters where they met with a member of the Director's Office, Mr Brian Donald, who spoke with the group about the operational work carried out by Europol, including the use of shared intelligence.

During the last stage of their trip the group also visited the International Criminal Court where they met with a number of Legal Officers who work in both the Chambers and for the Office of the Prosecutor.

The participants gratefully acknowledge the generous support provided for this visit by the University of Edinburgh Development Trust and the Scottish Centre for International Law.
