The Academy of European Law (AEL) has opened the 2022 application process for its advanced-level summer courses on Human Rights Law and The Law of the European Union.

Every year the Academy opens its doors to advanced students and researchers of law, lawyers, specialists, practitioners, and professors interested in deepening their knowledge and engaging in fruitful discussions on topical issues which are shaping the arena of rights in the EU and internationally.

This year the course on Human Rights Law, which will take place from 20 June to 1 July, will deal with topics related to migration, race and transitional justice.

The course on The Law of the EU, which will be held from 4 to 15 July, will discuss topics related to climate change and EU environmental governance.

The summer school is an opportunity to actively engage in debates on challenging societal and environmental issues, with each course structured around presentations and lectures by international professors and practitioners. 

This year's summer school courses will be held in a hybrid format, allowing for online and in-presence participation at Villa Salviati, situated between the hills of Florence and Fiesole.

AEL also offers selected participants from low-income countries the opportunity to participate online and pay a reduced fee for the course.

Interested applicants are welcome to send their applications, which will be considered on a rolling basis.
