Academy of European Law 2024 summer courses on EU Law and Human Rights

The EUI's Academy of European Law (AEL) is accepting applications to its advanced-level summer courses on 'The Law of the European Union' and 'Human Rights'.

01 March 2024 | Event


This year, the courses on The Law of the European Union and Human Rights will take place from 17 to 28 June at the EUI's Villa Salviati.

The EU Law course will be held in a hybrid format, allowing for online or in-person participation, and will address the topics of EU competition law and economic regulation and EU external relations.

The course on Human Rights will involve participants’ re-enactment of parts of the Ongwen trial at the International Criminal Court, based on a script edited by EUI Professor Sarah Nouwen and Wouter Werner (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam). Participants will be required to actively participate and perform the play in person, and the re-enactments will be followed by reflection sessions led by experts.

Now in its 35th year, the Academy’s Summer Schools continue to offer an opportunity to actively engage in debates on challenging societal issues, with each course structured around presentations and lectures by international professors and practitioners.

The courses are open to all postgraduate students and researchers who work in the field of law or human rights - including lawyers, barristers, specialists, practitioners, and professors - and who want to expand their legal notions through learning, engagement, and discussions of topical issues.

Interested applicants can apply here. All applications will be considered on a rolling basis, so interested applicants are encouraged to apply early.

Applicants may request financial support. For the EU Law course, there are funds available from the EUI Widening Europe Programme, and SGH-NAWA grants for Ukrainian participants. In addition, reduced fees are offered to online participants from lower-income countries.

For the Human Rights course, there are funds available from the EUI Widening Europe Programme, the Erasmus+ programme, and reduced fees are offered to members of the African Students and Alumni Forum. Full details of the eligibility criteria for financial support can be found on the application page.
