After a very successful third Sarajevo Summer ELSA Law School, we want to present to you another, hopefully even more successful fourth Sarajevo Summer ELSA Law School. This year’s topic is Freedom of Religion in Europe, since freedom of religion is considered by many people and nations to be a fundamental human right. Throughout the ELSA Law School we aim to present the basic concepts of freedom of religion and secularism, in order to learn more about different domestic legislation and the jurisprudence of the ECtHR. We will also be dealing with the contemporary challenges connected with this freedom that arise frequently.
From the topic, you can surely expect very interesting content, including a brilliant social programme, as well as exciting and high-quality lectures.
