The goal of the Human Right Summer ELSA Law School is learning the types and meanings of human rights and the possible ways of achieving them and encouraging debate around this theme. On the other hand, the Law School aims to allow participants to participate in a series of socio-cultural activities and experience the characterises of the city of Coimbra (students' city). We want to sensitise the participants to all the issues involved and, whenever possible, to find new paths to old problems, or at least new interpretations for the same solutions. The speakers will be specialists in the field and will include lawyers, activists, members of national and international organisations and more. Selected participants will have to fly to Lisbon or to Porto and then take the train or bus to Coimbra.
