Malta – Maritime Law

Following the success of the previous two editions of the Summer ELSA Malta Law School on Maritime Law, and the high demand from applicants, ELSA Malta will be hosting the third edition of the ELSA Law school this August 2017. The ELSA Malta Law School will be taking place within the week of the 20th to the 27th of August 2017. The academic programme will consist of lectures tackling different topics of Maritime Law, to be delivered by top professionals and academics in the field. The official programme also includes a diverse social programme, which will give participants a  chance to fully experience Malta’s unique, special & Mediterranean culture. The participants will be immersed in the vibrant social atmosphere that Malta is renowned for, including partying in Paceville, boat parties and bus parties. In addition to this, if participants would like to visit Malta’s sister islands, Gozo and Comino, they may do so by joining the pre-SELS programme that ELSA Malta has specifically planned for our participants. This is an opportunity to explore the more peaceful and rural islands and the warm and friendly locals! We strongly suggest to not miss out on this opportunity to visit our sunny islands, and we look forward to hosting you in MALTA!
