Judicial Fellowship Program at International Court of Justice (ICJ): Apply by Feb 5

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) invites applications from eligible universities around the world for the 2023-2024 Judicial Fellowship Programme (formerly known as the University Traineeship Programme).

About the International Court of Justice

The International Court of Justice, sometimes known as the World Court, is one of the six principal organs of the United Nations. It settles disputes between states in accordance with international law and gives advisory opinions on international legal issues.

About Judicial Fellowship Program

The Programme was established in 1999 to enable recent law graduates to gain professional experience working at the ICJ.

The Fellowship Programme aims to improve participants’ understanding of public international law and of the Court’s procedures by actively involving them in the work of the Court and allowing them to build on their experience under the supervision of a judge.

The Judicial Fellows work on a full-time basis under the supervision of a Member of the Court and alongside the primary legal assistant of the judge.

The Judicial Fellows can expect to attend the Court’s public hearings, research and write memorandums on legal questions or factual aspects of the cases pending before the Court, and perform other duties assigned by their judge.

The duration of the Fellowship is approximately ten months, from early September to June of the following year.
