Think big. Dream High
From 7 to 25 July Ms. Olga Stelmakh, Of Counsel with the Cai and Lenard Law Firm, pursued an in-depth course on Public International Law at the Hague Academy of International Law. Ms. Stelmakh was selected for this programme upon a serious competition together with more than 300 representatives from around the world (mainly practicing international lawyers, diplomats, international organizations staff members, doctoral students, professors, etc.). All applicants who were selected for this programme are united by an outstanding genuine professional interest in international law.
As noted by O. Stelmakh, the programme was a unique opportunity to listen to a series of lectures delivered by gurus and legends of international law, authoritative international lawyers, in particular by Dr. Tuzmukhamedov, on whose writings were formed more than one generation of international lawyers from the post-Soviet area. In addition, the programme provided access to the most comprehensive library of international law – the Peace Palace Library, which is deservedly regarded by many as a treasury for research and personal development.
