Cracow – International Tax Law


ELSA Krakow is pleased to invite you to spend your vacation in one of the most charming cities in Europe during the 8th edition of Summer ELSA Law School Cracow on International Tax Law! The event will take place on Jule 14-21, 2024, in Cracow - the city of Polish kings, filled with rich history, breathtaking views and delicious cuisine.

The topic of our Summer ELSA Law School has stuck with us for quite a long time now, but we have found it to be so dynamic and interesting that Participants cannot be bored with it. We plan on providing you with such an experience that will lead you to the same conclusion! Through introductory lectures and workshops, Participants can get an insight into International Tax Law and advance both their academic but also their professional prospects by familiarising themselves with taxation principles, model tax conventions and the latest international developments in Tax Law.

In addition to acquiring valuable knowledge, Participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Polish culture from a local perspective. Summer offers us the perfect chance to enjoy iconic experiences like walking through the Old Town, which is one of the first objects listed by UNESCO, listening to the St. Mary's Trumpet Call, tasting our most famous delicacies, and embracing the vibrant nightlife along the Vistula River.

We are certain that SELS Cracow will be an enriching experience that will leave you with beautiful memories and long-lasting friendships!
