The Australian Institute of International Affairs and the International Law Association (Australian Branch) are delighted that Brooke Adele Marshall, a former recipient of the Peter Nygh Hague Conference Internship Award, was recently awarded the Hague Academy Diploma of Private International Law.
The Hague Academy Diploma of Private International Law is highly regarded in the international law community, and Brooke is one of only 9 Australians to have received the Diploma. Past recipients include former High Court judge the Hon. Sir William Deane AC, international lawyer Henry Burmester AO QC and Damian Sturzaker, immediate past president of the International Law Association (Australian Branch). The diploma ceremony was held on 19 August 2016 and Brooke was the only person to be awarded the Hague Academy Diploma of Private International Law in 2016.
Brooke is currently undertaking a PhD in Private International Law at the University of Hamburg whilst working as a senior research fellow in Comparative and International Private Law at the Max Planck Institute in Germany.
We congratulate Brooke on this exceptional achievement.
