European Private Law Summer School, Salzburg
The Foundation helped fund the attendance of a number of University of Edinburgh students at the European Private Law Summer School in Salzburg. The Summer School lasted for 2 weeks during which the students attended classes and workshops.
The Summer School lasted for 2 weeks during which the students attended lectures, panel discussions and workshops. Each lecture focused on a different legal system (from over 30). It was an intensive programme with many different systems to learn about.
The comparative analysis and ability to reflect on the strengths or weaknesses of different systems provided the students with an invaluable foundation for writing essays and dissertations. They also appreciated the benefits of dialogue with legal practitioners in other countries and the summer school sparked their interest to continue to expand their knowledge of the law in years to come.
