First Period: 10 - 28 July 2017
PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL LAW
Second Period: 31 July - 18 August 2017
PRIVATE INTERNATIONAL LAW
The Summer Courses are organized in two periods of 3 weeks each, one focusing on Public International Law and one on Private International Law. Since the very outset in 1923 thousands of students from over 100 nationalities have been able to attend them. Many alumni, having thus had the opportunity to meet "great names" in the field of international Law, have subsequently gone on to become themselves well-known academics, lawyers or diplomats, among other occupations.
The courses consist of lectures on general or special topics and are subsequently published in the Collected Courses series, of which there are currently over 380 volumes, ranking among the most important encyclopaedic publications on public and private international law.
