Lawyr.it is happy to announce the successful completion of its brand new Summer Schools Project!
You will find all the relevant information in our Lawyr.it Summer Schools rubric. If you are still looking for a productive way to spend the summer, do not worry: in this article, we have compiled a list of all the programmes with open deadlines for you to choose from!
After three months of research and writing, our legal researchers Daniela Toma and Vasiliki Fasoula completed all the Summer School articles. The aim was to give our readers valuable information on law-related summer courses all over Europe. Our articles were specifically designed to bring into focus the most important aspects of each summer school, including their academic content, tuition fees, accommodation information, application deadlines and documents.
We are hoping that this will become a permanent rubric, bringing updates about summer schools to our readers yearly. As you know, one of Lawyr.it's goals is to help law students enhance their knowledge and develop their career plans, and we are going to contribute to that in any way we can!
For those of you who are still making summer plans, we have gathered those programmes that still accept applications:
