Vienna – Dispute Resolution


9th Summer ELSA Law School Vienna on Dispute Resolution will take place from 19th of July to 26th of July 2020. It is a unique opportunity to learn more about the great variety of dispute resolution techniques, particularly litigation, arbitration,mediation and negotiation. The participants will not only learn from the crème de la crème of Vienna's lawyers but the workshops will also contain a large amount of exercises and competitions to help them to effectively deepen newly acquired knowledge. Furthermore, in a panel discussion, you will get career advice from some of the most experienced legal experts in Austria.

Beside the concentrated work however, one thing is not to be forgotten: the fun! You will have the possibility to discover the world's most livable city with all its great places and historical atmosphere.
Additionally, thriving and ever-vibrant, Vienna nightlife is definitely a “to do in” Vienna. From jazzy nightclubs to quaint bars, there’s nothing that this city does't offer to night crawlers, party-goers, and those looking for a peaceful night out.

All in all, there are a lot of things you can look forward to!
It is our pleasure and honor to meet other law students and young lawyers from all over the world. See you in Vienna!
