Applications are open for the International Court of Justice Judicial Fellowship Program 2022-2023. The Judicial Fellowship Program was established to enable recent law graduates to gain experience working at the International Court of Justice in The Hague. Candidates are nominated and sponsored by their universities.

The Fellowship Program 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. The Court normally accepts up to 15 participants per year from various universities across the world.
