Academy of European Law Summer Courses

The Academy of European Law holds two Summer Courses each year, with one course on Human Rights Law and another on the Law of the European Union. The two summer courses - featuring distinguished lectures, a general course, and a series of specialized courses - are open to advanced students of law or related fields, academics, lawyers, and practitioners.

The programmes are available online for the Academy of European Law’s 2017 Summer Courses, and the call for applications is open. The Human Rights Law course (19-30 June) will focus on the implications of globalization for human rights and the Law of the European Union course (3-14 July) will explore new approaches to studying the Court of Justice as well as the implications of the UK’s decision to leave the EU.

Human Rights Law course: 19 - 30 June 2017

The Law of the European Union course: 3 - 14 July 2017

The deadline for applications was 20 April 2017. Applications are now closed.

The summer courses will take place at Villa Salviati.

The Academy of European Law was founded in 1990 by Prof. Antonio Cassese and Prof. Joseph H.H. Weiler, and the annual summer courses promote teaching and scholarship in Human Rights Law and the Law of the European Union Law.
