What is the Summer School of civil law ?
International legal meeting for Civil law and legal culture, this event brings together every year many students and legal practitioners from all around the world.
In 2022, the Summer School is back in a 100% digital format, from June 28th to July 28th, considering travel restrictions due to the health crisis.
Our ambition remains the same : to provide all participants with a body of knowledge on civil law, its evolution and its influence on legal and economic models around the world.
The richness of our Summer School lies in the quality of the education which comes from the prestigious and internationally renowned University of Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas as well as in the diversity of the legal cultures represented. We are particularly attached to the international dimension of this event, both from the point of view of the participants and of the promotion of different legal cultures, which lead to privileged moments of meeting and debate.
The courses are available in two different languages: French and English.
The courses, taught by eminent law professors and practitioners, with different fields of expertise and backgrounds, will be held this year only in digital format.
The program comprises four mandatory courses… :
- Introduction to Continental Legal Culture (8 hours)
- European and International Contract Law (8 hours)
- Settlement of International Disputes (8 hours)
- Constitutional Law and Fundamental Freedoms (6 hours)
… and one optional course (choose one course among the following two):
- Environmental Law (8 hours) or
- Digital Law – Protection of Personal Data (8 hours)
