Explore the challenges of public interest advocacy in international law and rethink what it means to practice public interest advocacy in the international system. At the International lawyering in a public interest summer programme organised by the Asser Institute, we bring together leaders in practice, including advocates, activists, academics and members of NGOs, to discuss questions of cutting-edge legal techniques, how to find funding, how to identify causes for advocacy, how to start up your practice, and more. The summer programme will take place at the Asser Institute from 8-12 July, 2019.
