Prague – Intellectual Property and Cyber Security


ELSA Prague continues its tradition and invites you to the 5th edition of the Winter ELSA Law School on Intellectual property and Cyber security, which will take place from  February 11-18, 2023 in the most beautiful city in the world, according to last year's Timeout article, Prague. Students from abroad will have the unique opportunity to participate in various academic and social programmes.

This year the WELS is focused on two appealing fields of law – Intellectual Property and Cyber Security. Both gained popularity in the past few years and are becoming more and more crucial in the working sphere and everyday life. What's more, the topic of Cyber Security is special to WELS Prague since we have experience with it, and no other ELSA Law School – winter one or summer one – offers this futuristic theme.

The focus lies on deepening the legal knowledge of the participants about both topics and learning some practical skills. The participants can expect a Moot Court on the last day of the academic programme, which will be held with one of our associates.

Don’t worry, there are going to be plenty of ways to enjoy your stay. ELSA Prague will also offer cultural and social activities, such as sightseeing through the city of Prague or Czech night, as well as evening events - however, you can forget about the boring bar seating. Last but not least there will be a Gala Ball at the end of our WELS.

As ELSA Prague, we are looking forward to meeting you and seeing you in Prague, the heart of Europe. Don’t miss out!
