The Q&A series offer the best preparation for tackling exam questions.

The student is required to answer questions on the nature of international criminal law, which criminalizes violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law. There is also a question on the development of international criminal tribunals which requires knowledge of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
