In 2022, Summer ELSA Law School Lisbon & Cascais will focus on International Economic Criminal Law. Along with a high-profile academic team, we will tackle important subjects related to financial crime, such as corruption, money laundering, and antitrust practices, which are significantly impacting countries all around the globe. After all, how do we fight economic crime in a transnational setting?

Complexity of Academic Programme
Academic Programme

Our academic programme will be structured around the topic of International Criminal Economic Law. In a world so global and fast-paced, corruption is today’s hot topic, as it is an evergrowing concern amidst the Law. Having said so, our programme is composed of lectures, activities (such as Moot Courts, Client Interviewing Competitions and Workshops), institutional visits and roundtables, during the course of 6 days. Our choice of lecturers and judges strives for excellence and everyone in the SELS’s panel is brilliant. From the European Prosecutor’s Office Investigators to renowned University Professors and the very best lawyers, our academic programme aims to meet the highest standard possible. The content in itself will be mostly introductory, in order for our participants to grasp the basis of the subjects from the start, allowing the lecturers to progressively build up the programme’s complexity according to the response of the participants. We expect the sessions to be interactive and pro-participation. We hope to meet you all there!
