Innsbruck – Medical & Health Law


Health is one of the highest and most precious goods we humans possess which is why there is a wide range of laws intending to protect individual as well as public health. This range of laws is growing continuously but how far can a state go? Which restrictions are still acceptable and where should the line to a space be drawn where everybody can decide individually whether they want to endanger themselves or not, eg regarding alcohol, drugs or food?

These and further questions will be discussed at the Summer ELSA Law School on Medical and Health Law -  Nanny State vs. the Freedom of Self-Endangerment in Innsbruck. Apart from a high quality academic programme, a varied social programme - which will also provide you with the chance to get to know Innsbruck, a beautiful small student city embedded in the Alps - is awaiting you. Seize the opportunity and apply!
