Wroclaw – International Trade Law


The ELSA Law School on International Trade incorporates a combination of law and business with global society. International Trade is one of the foundations of economy of the 21st century and one of the most important matters in relationships between countries. The primary aim of the project is to broaden the legal knowledge and develop the practical skills (through simulations and workshops) that are utilised in professional relations. It will prepare participants to take part in a moot court competition. The whole academic programme focuses on international trade treaties and conventions - especially one of the most controversial lately - CETA. These regulations have an influence on countries, on companies and on each of us.

Academic Programme

The academic programme will take place between the 17th and the 21st of July. During the first four days, participants will be provided with the necessary legal knowledge with regard to international trade and will also develop practical skills that are undoubtedly required amongst professionals. The whole academic programme will especially focus on the CETA treaty – its importance, meaning and usage. After those four days all participants will participate in a moot court, organised specifically for this ELSA Law School. On Friday evening the glamorous Gala Ball will take place as a summary of the competition.
