Antwerp – Intellectual Property Law and Competition Law


ELSA Antwerp is pleased to announce the 6th edition of its Summer ELSA Antwerp Law School from July 2 - 9, 2023. We offer participants the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the area of Intellectual Property Law and Competition Law. Besides that, we have put together an interesting social and cultural programme allowing participants to discover Belgium and our beautiful city of Antwerp. 

With more than 50 000 students, Antwerp is one of the largest student cities in Belgium. The perfect place to both learn, have a great week and meet students from all over the world with similar interests in Intellectual Property law and Competition law. In addition, Antwerp is also known as a true fashion city. These characteristics will also be reflected in our varied academic programme.
