The Winter ELSA Law School Split on Humanitarian Law and Human Rights is an immersive educational program that takes place during the winter season. This unique academic experience is designed to provide participants with a deep understanding of humanitarian law and human rights within the context of Croatia and the broader international community.

It is really important to familiarize yourself with this topic, which unfortunately is still very relevant today. Croatia has also recently experienced war in modern times as a part of former Yugoslavia, so our lecturers are very experienced in this matter. They can offer you best insight into law and the struggle for protection of human rights in such times.

In addition to lectures, a fun social programme awaits you. We prepared fun and competitive activities such as bowling, city games, karaoke, pub quizzes and national drinks night.

Split is also a city full of history. The center of the city is Diocletian's Palace, which is an ancient palace built for the Roman emperor Diocletian at the end of the third century AD. Today the remains of the palace are part of the historic core of Split, which in 1979 was listed by UNESCO.
