This course builds on the course International Criminal Law. It takes a closer look at the first law and practice of the International Criminal Court and problems of international criminal procedure. It reviews issues such as jurisdiction, admissibility, prosecutorial powers, fair trial rights, role of victims and aspects of criminal procedure from a comparative perspective and from the angle of different participants in criminal proceedings (Prosecution, Defence, Judges). It will contain assignments and tasks, which are drawn from the actual law and practice of the ICC and the ad hoc tribunals. It will also provide an opportunity for exchange with practitioners and Court officials.
