You’ll discover the role of law in the real world, learn to identify its presence in your everyday life, and gain an understanding of basic concepts related to the main legal institutions and how they operate.
Introduction to international relations
By studying current events in global affairs, you’ll learn how the international order operates, how it’s designed, and why international organisations are so important in today’s globalised world. The European Union will also be a major object of study: How did it originate? What institutions comprise it?
Like law, politics is a major professional sector that is present in all aspects of our daily lives. You’ll learn the basics of politics from a global, multidisciplinary perspective.
Development of skills and competencies
You’ll work on skills such as leadership, negotiation and personal brand building, with the aim of developing the competencies you need for your career.
The Summer School for highschool students is designed to be a complete experience that teaches you about law and helps you develop as a person. With this goal in mind, we’ve organised various complementary activities:
Visit to an international law firm
To complement the knowledge acquired in class, you’ll be taken on a guided tour of an international law firm.
Lectures on theory will be complemented by more dynamic activities such as debates on current affairs and discussions of real-life case studies. Films will also be shown to highlight various aspects of law. Finally, mock trials will be held to illustrate legal conflicts, with each student playing a different role.
