Global Law & Governance Summer School

Global Law and Governance Summer School has been a pioneering initiative of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), that was developed at the initiative of Professor Ioannis Lianos (UCL) and Dr. George Dimitropoulos (HBKU Law). The program was hosted by the sea next to the Poseidon temple at Sounion, a suburb of Athens, Greece.This year the School will not be running.

Global Law and Governance Summer School offered an intensive full week summer program on July every year, with courses and study sessions, all of them taught in the English language from a leading faculty from prestigious Universities around the world, with a completely interdisciplinary approach to law and policy. This was not a traditional summer school with introductory courses in different areas of law or social science. Instead, it operated as a research-led teaching Academy, providing professors the opportunity to share their most recent research with a select group of students, through lectures, seminars and mini-colloquia. Students have access to a variety of seminars providing cutting-edge analysis on hot topics in global law and governance.

2017 Professors

Students attended during their program a one-Day Conference on "Artificial cosmoi and the law" organized by the University College London (UCL), the Institute of Studies in Competition Law and Policy (IMEDIPA) and the European Public Law Organization (EPLO) in Athens on Thursday, July 28th, 2017.

The professors that support the program through teaching originate from prestigious institutions from throughout the world.

Students were awarded the Certificate of Attendance, provided that they fully attend and actively participate in classes, as well as complete all assignments. ECTS Diploma Supplements are also available upon request.

Who is eligible for the GLG Summer School?

The GLG Summer School is primarily addressed to graduate students, but also to excellent undergraduate students from all fields of social sciences such as law, politics, economics, sociology, history, philosophy and international relations, as well as to trainee lawyers, lawyers and officials of international organizations and domestic administrations who might have no background in interdisciplinarity and seek ways to continue their education. The participants will attend classes in the various fields conducted by eminent professors from prestigious Universities from all over the world. All the courses will be seminar-like classes and colloquia, and the active class-participation will be encouraged.
