NEW: Book the Summer School according to your needs! Participants will now be given the chance to design their course of study with a choice of two different options.

Option I (July 3-23, 2019): Students attend one mandatory course and can further choose three classes out of five available subjects. In addition, the students take part in the moot court exercise, in which they will sharpen their skills in litigation (8 ECTS; transcripts of grades and credits will be issued by the University of Lucerne).

Option II (July 3-17, 2019) - for international students only: Students attend one mandatory course and can further choose up to four classes out of five available subjects (4 ECTS; transcripts of grades and credits will be issued by the University of Lucerne).

In both options, the coursework will be accompanied by lunch seminars, where students will interact with professors and practitioners. Furthermore, the two options include two excursions, one to Geneva and one to Strasbourg. In Geneva, the participants will visit the European Headquarters of the United Nations, as well as various NGOs. In Strasbourg, the participants will visit the seat of the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe. During the excursions the participants interact with important NGO’s and officials and acquire insight into the reality of human rights implementation.
