Supranational Criminal Law (SCL) Lectures

The Supranational Criminal Law (SCL) Lectures Series is a lecture series on international criminal law and has been organised by the T.M.C. Asser Instituut since 2003, in cooperation with the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University (Campus The Hague) and the Coalition for the International Criminal Court. The lectures are held at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, typically on Wednesdays at 7 pm, and are public and free of charge. Registration is usually not necessary (unless indicated otherwise), but as space is limited, seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

The SCL Lecture Series has welcomed the biggest names in international criminal law to the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, such as former ASP Presidents Christian Wenaweser and Tiina Intelmann, former ICC Prosecutor Mr. Luis Moreno-Ocampo, former Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone Mr. David Crane, former Registrar of the ICC Ms. Silvana Arbia, Prosecutor of the ICTY Serge Brammertz, Prosecutor of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon Norman Farrell, Prof. Cherif Bassiouni of DePaul University, Prof. John Dugard of Leiden University, former President of the ICC Philippe Kirsch, Ombudsperson of the Security Council’s 1267 Committee Ms. Kimberly Prost, Benjamin Ferencz, the only surviving Nuremberg war crimes prosecutor, and many others.

The views and opinions expressed in or during the Supranational Criminal Law lectures are not necessarily those of the host and/or participating organisations, namely the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, the Grotius Centre for International Legal Studies of Leiden University and the Coalition for the International Criminal Court.
