The Trials before the Trial: International Criminal Law Litigation in its Earliest Stages
This training was conducted by Marie O’Leary, Annie O’Reilly and Haydee Dijkstal who have a wealth of experience at the international courts and tribunals.
The first stages of a case are often those requiring quick movement with little information. Each party and participant plays a unique, but critical, role in preliminary investigations and the initial motions that take place well before the first day of trial. Focusing on preliminary examinations/investigations, arrest/transfer, first appearance, admissibility/jurisdictional challenges, and victim participation, this day will go through the critical phases and key decisions that must be made well before the 'all rise' of opening statements.
