The Specialisation Course for Prosecutors is open to members of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP), as well as prosecutors and related criminal justice professionals who are not IAP members. However, the registration cost for non-IAP members includes an additional amount (€50), which is the cost of annual IAP membership.
Applicants should have no more than ten years’ relevant professional experience.
The Specialisation Course will be delivered in English. Therefore, a high level of English proficiency is required.
Registrations for the 2020 edition of the Course open on Friday 17 January 2020. Prior to submitting your registration form, you must ensure that you have attached your curriculum vitae and a brief motivation letter as directed.
The total number of participants will be limited to 50. Geographic and gender balance will be considered in selecting participants.
The Registration Contribution for the Specialisation Course is € 1,200 for IAP members, and € 1,250 for non-IAP members. You must indicate in the online registration form whether you are a current IAP member.
Registration closes on 31 March 2020 unless the total number of places are filled before this deadline. Therefore, applicants are strongly advised to register as soon as possible. Acceptance letters will be sent out shortly after the close of registration. Candidates who are not accepted for the course will be informed accordingly.
