RSIL annually hosts Annual Fellowship Programme for a select group of advanced professionals from the public and private sector. For seven days, they engage in courses designed to deliver theoretical and practical knowledge on international law and its applications in Pakistan. The program examines the basic infrastructure of international law, including that of the United Nations and its subsidiaries. Participants are also educated on the relevance of international instruments and obligations related to topics such as law of the sea, human rights and intellectual property. Each teaching module includes case studies that further illustrate the relevant legal principles in Pakistan’s domestic law context.
The lecturers include both RSIL’s in-house legal experts as well as independent professionals long associated with RSIL and its Fellowship Program. These outside experts hail from academia, the government and the legal fraternity.
The objective of the Fellowship Program is to impart an appreciation for international law within the participating individuals and their associated institutions. This program is an integral portion of RSIL’s longstanding tradition of promoting the implementation of international legal commitments. It is hoped that a framework for facilitating Pakistan’s progress as a responsible member of the international community will develop with assistance from the network of graduates of the fellowship program.

Since 2005, RSIL has hosted an internship program for students and young professionals seeking greater knowledge about international law. Every year participants are invited to the RSIL premises to gain an in-depth understanding of both the basic framework of international law and those fields in which Pakistan places a particular interest.
RSIL endeavors to disseminate a more developed understanding of various aspects of international law within the legal fraternity. A better understanding of this law and its corresponding obligations will lead to improved domestic dialogue on these issues and by association, improved compliance globally.
The International Law Certification Course takes place each year within the summer months at RSIL’s premises in Islamabad.
Participants will be guided by RSIL’s experienced in-house teams as well as by seasoned practitioners. RSIL’s guest lecturers are renowned experts from all over the world and include: practicing lawyers, policymakers, retired judges, journalists, diplomats and academics. Participants are also encouraged to develop their skills through various exercises in writing and critical analysis. This certification course is designed to bridge the theoretical with the practical applications of international law and to provide participants with the background knowledge that will lead to further research and perhaps eventually a career in international law.
Our graduates often return to RSIL later on to take up a career in international law. Others, after having developed knowledge and passion for international law, join non-governmental organizations, international development organizations and the public sector to further their careers. Many graduates also use the information and skills acquired at RSIL to create their own writings for journals and newspapers alike.
