Our Summer School

Since 2008, almost 400 students and 30 lecturers from all over Europe (including from previous partner universities) participated in our summer school.

Our goals are:

• To offer a blended and intensive training, focusing on transnational developments at the EU level;

• To promote the sharing of knowledge, experiences and practices between participants from different countries;

• To help participants in developing incisive reasoning skills and other soft skills such as team working, problem solving and argumentative reasoning.

The 2024 Summer School will consist of 40 hours of lectures, a workshop and a moot court. It aims to provide a comprehensive training on the legal discipline of consumer protection and market regulation in the European Union Law, with a particular reference to circular economy, taking into account the following relevant topics:

1) Consumer protection and empowerment issues;

2) Private international law issues;

3) Dispute resolution and redress issues;

4) Market regulation.

The Summer school will be based on tested participatory methodology, including interactive discussions and case studies. The topics will be analysed adopting an interdisciplinary approach, involving trainers from different disciplines and background. The training material will be available on a devoted training platform.

The Summer School is designed for undergraduate students, graduate students and PhD students, from faculties of Law, Economics, Political Science or International Relations intending to upgrade their knowledge and competences on the specific topics of the course.

A general knowledge of European Union Law is strongly recommended if not the School will provide appropriate teaching material in advance. All the activities will be held in English. Therefore, participants are asked to be fluent in English in order to actively participate to the course.
