Baku – Business Law


ELSA Azerbaijan is organizing the 6th edition of the Summer ELSA Law School on Business Law, which will take place from July 9-16, 2023 in the capital city of Azerbaijan, Baku.

Every summer has a story. So we invite you to write one of your best stories in Baku-with us. SELS Baku will provide the best academic and social programmes for its participants.

Azerbaijan is one of the main oil and gas providing countries in Caucasus, and even in Europe. Openness to foreign investment has aided Azerbaijan’s transition to a market economy and wide-ranging reforms have improved its overall macroeconomic environment. That rapid development has led to the improvement of Business Law in Azerbaijan. 

SELS Baku guarantees that lawyers of leading international law firms will teach various aspects of Business Law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Dispute regulation and Tax regimes. Furthermore, students and young lawyers will enrich their knowledge on Contract Law, which is the main part of Business law with beneficial seminars from Law firms such as Dentons Baku, BHM Law firm and Deloitte Azerbaijan. Participants will get a chance to participate in Moot Court Simulation as parties.

During the social programme participants will be amazed by the natural beauty of Baku city. The old city is a maze of alleys, mosques, historic buildings and remnants of fortification, including the Palace of the Shirvanshahs and the Maiden Tower, now listed among UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Much more than a historic site, the city hosts vibrant arts and cultural activities, as well as a bustling modern business sector. The capital of Azerbaijan is like a panorama reflecting the entire beauty of the "land of fire". In addition to the rich history of the city, its modernity and the presence of many amusement parks, as well as a picnic with friends on the shore of the Caspian Sea, will make your summer memories unforgettable.
