On its 2nd edition, the Vila Nova de Gaia Winter ELSA Law School will focus on “Law of the Sea and Connected Rights”. It was our previous topic from the 1st edition, as we believe that this is a very current and increasing subject with a huge impact on the near future.

In this WELS, the academic programme will be carried out by the most competent and recognised professionals in this field of law, guaranteeing its quality. In addition to that, being in Portugal, a country so connected to the sea with one of the largest continental platforms, we believe that we are the right ones to approach the subject with the attention it deserves.

The social programme will be full of dynamic and interesting activities, promising that you will have the time to meet new people and enjoy your time while you learn our traditions in the most fun way.

During 7 days, you will get to know this beautiful city of Vila Nova de Gaia & Porto which was the European Best Destination for two years in a row.

You will have a unique experience that you will never forget! Our 1st edition was a success and we will make it even better this time around!
