Salzburg & Innsbruck – Sports Law


ELSA Salzburg and ELSA Innsbruck are happy to announce the second edition of their Winter ELSA Law School on Sports Law/Legal Aspects of Doping. 

The city of Salzburg is a picturesque cultural town located next to the Alps. It is world-famous for being rich in music, art, and theatre– a true cultural stronghold. Furthermore, you might associate it with Mozart's Birthplace and Hometown, and you might recognize the scenic landscape from the musical "Sound Of Music". Salzburg is famous for its historical old town which you can stroll through and do high-end shopping or explore local boutiques while enjoying the wide squares, antique buildings, and beautiful parks speckled within the old town. While here, you must try different cafes as coffee time is a treasured tradition in Salzburg and there are many traditional but also many modern cafes all throughout the city.

Innsbruck is a very modern and student-rich town located right in the heart of the Alps, surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks and surreal views. Innsbruck is rich in history and used to be one of the favorite cities of the Habsburg emperors – thus many beautiful historic buildings remain and attract people from all around the world. Innsbruck is Austria's unofficial capital of sport, as the landscape provides a huge range of both summer and winter activities. 

Our WELS will give you the opportunity to study Sports Law in two cities where sport is celebrated and an important part of local culture. The focus of the Academic program lies in deepening the participants’ legal knowledge in the field of sports law and the legal consequences of doping through attending interesting lectures both from professors and experts working in the field.

You will experience the Austrian culture, the mountains, and two beautiful cities. Our social program will be filled with fun and exciting activities such as ice skating, hiking, and much more, to hopefully make your week in Salzburg and Innsbruck unforgettable.
