This course deals with Tribunal in The Hague and other international courts, as well as their functions and roles in modern society. It is especially interesting because it isn’t abstract in nature – it is based on particular cases and interviews with lawyers and judges who dealt with them. By the end of the course you will know how these courts operate, what are their potential influences on the support and promotion of international justice and whether they manage to do their job more often than not.
Of course, online learning can hardly replace old brick-and-mortar universities – but for those incapable of getting an education in one of them, these courses are godsend. Make use of this opportunity and enroll right now.
