ELSA Vienna is organising the 9th edition of the Summer ELSA Law School on dispute resolution, which will take place from 3 to 10 July 2022. The students will be hosted by ELSA Vienna and will participate in a varied academic and social programme. 

In this SELS, the academic programme will be carried out by the most competent and recognised professionals in this field of law, guaranteeing its quality. The University of Vienna, as our academic partner and speakers from various global law firms and from the Vienna International Arbitral Centre are supporting us on this endeavour.  

The focus lies on deepening the legal knowledge of the participants about dispute resolution - especially about arbitration, litigation and mediation. The participants can expect a Mini Moot Court at the last day of the academic programme.

However, ELSA Vienna will also offer cultural and social activities, such as visits of the city of Vienna, sports activities like Lasertag and Boating, as well as evening events like our welcome dinner. To crown it all, there will be a Gala-Ball at the end of our SELS. 

The Summer Law School will allow young lawyers to expand their network and evolve in an international environment. Joining the Summer ELSA Law School in Vienna will also allow the participants to gain some practical experience in dispute resolution.
