ELSA Antwerp is happy to announce the first edition of the Summer ELSA Antwerp Law School and it may be the start of a great tradition. From the 9th to the 14th of July 2017, we would like to offer you the opportunity to improve your knowledge about Intellectual Property Law and Competition Law. The academic programme will contain theoretical lectures and practical workshops on this versatile topic. The lectures will be held by professors and Belgian lawyers from successful international companies and will give you both a professional and academic point of view. Our goal is to allow passionate law students to gain extensive knowledge on Intellectual Property Law and Competition Law. Besides the academic part, our social programme will make Belgium your greatest summer experience, including a traditional Belgium beer night and much more. Of course, you will also get the chance to discover our beautiful city of Antwerp and a day trip to Brussels is also on the agenda.
