Ljubljana – Business Law: Challenges of the Upcoming Decade


ELSA Slovenia is thrilled to announce its Summer ELSA Law School, which will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from August 25 - September 1, 2024.

Ljubljana, the charming capital city of Slovenia, is a delightful blend of old-world charm and modern vibrancy. Nestled at the foot of the Julian Alps, this picturesque city is characterized by enchanting medieval architecture, cobblestone streets, and leafy green spaces. The Ljubljanica River gracefully flows through the heart of the city, adorned with quaint bridges, inviting cafes, and lively markets. One of the most famous landmarks is Ljubljana’s historic Old Town, home to the iconic Ljubljana Castle perched atop a hill, offering panoramic views of the city below. With its vibrant cultural scene, thriving culinary scene, and friendly atmosphere, Ljubljana captivates visitors with its unique blend of beauty, culture, and history. 

Our SELS will provide an extensive programme exploring legal aspects of Business Law. Led by experts, it will cover topics on Mergers & Acquisitions, Corporate & Contracts, Financial Law, Competition Law, as well as Sports Law. Through lectures, seminars, and roundtables, which will mostly be held at the modern and spacious Faculty of Law, University of Ljubljana, and other activities hosted by leading Tier 1 Slovenian business law firms, participants will gain valuable insights and skills essential for navigating the legal complexities of modern Business Law.

Join us this summer in Ljubljana for an enriching academic, cultural, and social programme and an unforgettable experience!
