Eligibility, Registration and Payment


SCJP 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.

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.
