“Let’s make law better this summer!”

After twelve successful editions of its Summer Schools, ELSA Bucharest decided to come back in full force with a new theme, new location, an amazing academic and social programme and, wait for it…, the longest Summer Law School of them all.

M&A are a big part of the corporate finance world. The process of mergers and acquisitions comprises peculiar, yet complex problems - thus, it reveals an ever-growing industry developed in the contemporary law system, allowing lawyers to adapt their workflow to these challenging issues.

The new approach to the concept of mergers and acquisitions offers participants the opportunity to take part in various academic, social and cultural activities through which they can obtain a whole new bag of information.

Therefore, we invite you to take part in the longest Summer ELSA Law School which will take place for 10 days in the awe-inspiring capital of Romania, Bucharest.
