Private international law course by profession
Our private international law courses are always focused on a specific professional group. This enables us to meet the specific information needs of this group. We have modules for:
- Corporate lawyers
In principle, we do not provide independent courses to students. However, IJI experts are regularly invited by universities in the Netherlands to give lectures on private international law.
Contents of the PIL Course
The Private International Law Course can be divided into three major subjects:
- International persons and family law
- International succession law
- International property and commercial law
Within these areas of law, we focus on:
- international jurisdiction
- the applicable law
- the recognition and enforcement of foreign decisions
- EU unified procedures
- cross-border service of documents
Each Private International Law Course focuses strongly on recent developments in the field of law and jurisprudence.
The contents of the Private International Law Course are strongly influenced by practice. The IJI uses its own practical experience to address certain problems that arise in practice. At the end of the course, a Q&A session is included, during which you can submit your practical questions to the IJI.
At the end of the Private International Law Course, the participant has an overview of the most important PIL regulations and is aware of recent developments.
Duration and Location of the Private International Law Course
The Private International Law Course takes two hours and usually takes place at the location of your institution or company; we come to you. It is also possible to organise a course at the IJI itself in The Hague. During the COVID-19 pandemic we also deliver online courses.
You can choose the time of the course yourself by telling us what time of day suits you best. It is customary to schedule our Private International Law Course for lunchtime.
If you are in need of a more in-depth course for your institution or company, please contact us and we will tailor a course for you. You can choose between one, two, and three-day courses.
Recently, the IJI held a “lunch & learn” at the law firm Meesters aan de Maas, which included a discussion on the impact of Brexit on PIL rules.
