About the Programme
The United Nations Regional Courses in International Law are conducted under the United Nations Programme of Assistance in the Teaching, Study, Dissemination and Wider Appreciation of International Law.

The Regional Courses provide high-quality training by prominent international law scholars and practitioners from different regions and legal systems on a broad range of core topics of international law, as well as specific topics of particular interest to the countries in a given region.
