Thessaloniki – European Tax Law


After many years of Medical Law, our new topic is the European Tax Law! For the last 5 years every middle of July, students from all over the world have the chance to get to know the Greek culture, enjoy sightseeing in our beautiful city and take a taste from the traditional delicacies of Thessaloniki. During these days, we have arranged an excursion in Chalkidiki, a seaside place close to Thessaloniki, where participants can swim in the crystal clear sea. Social events are held every night to remind them how vibrant the nightlife in Thessaloniki is.
