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.
Each lecture focused on a different legal system. Students had the opportunity to ask questions and start a discussion. In this way the lectures were dynamic and interesting. A particular focus of the Summer School was on mixed legal systems, such as Scotland, Malta, Quebec, Louisiana and South Africa.
The students also took part in workshops where they had to solve a potential legal problem by applying the law of their own country. In the workshop each country presented its own way of solving the legal problem, thus demonstrating the differences and similarities between the legal system. Each workshop was led by a group of professors from different jurisdictions.
