Attend a hearing
Hearings are public unless the Court decides otherwise (Article 40 of the Convention). Hearings last approximately two hours with English and French interpretation.
As the number of seats in the courtroom is limited, a live broadcast of the hearing is organised.
If you wish to attend a public hearing, please complete the electronic form. The minimum age to attend a hearing is 18 years.
If a hearing is cancelled or adjourned, you will be informed as soon as possible.
All the Court’s public hearings are filmed and recordings are available on the Court’s website. Hearings held in the morning can be viewed from 2.30 p.m. onwards, while those held in the afternoon are available during the evening.
Thanks to the support provided by Ireland, all the Court’s public hearings since 2007 have been filmed and can be viewed in their entirety, with interpretation in French and English.
