SELS Sofia on Tax Law is back with its third edition, which will take place form July 27 - August 03, 2024. This year, ELSA Bulgaria invites you to experience an unforgettable summer in one of the most beautiful countries on the Balkan Peninsula. The Organising Committee is beyond excited to welcome Participants to a week of rigorous academic activities, coupled with unforgettable moments in our capital - Sofia!

This year’s Academic Programme will revolve around the topic of Tax Law. Through multiple lectures covering various aspects of Tax Law, local and international academics and professionals with recognised excellence in the field will present Participants with tangible knowledge, allowing them to explore and strengthen their grasp on Tax Law, thus promoting their future development both as practitioners and academics.

Outside of academic activities, ELSA Bulgaria has ensured that the Participants will make the most out of Sofia - a largely underrated European capital, which perfectly fits the description of a “hidden gem”. With its rich history spanning from the Romans through Ottoman rule and a communist regime, mirrored by a flourishing social and nightlife, the city is the perfect location for anyone seeking new adventures.
