International programmes

The Academy aims to exchange knowledge about the field of legislation beyond their national borders. We have participated in international seminars and training programmes organized by international partner organisations, ranging from a two day seminar to a two week programme for different legal professionals around the world. Programmes have been developed for Surinam, Aruba, Sint Maarten and Indonesia.
