Call for applications to the annual EDELNet LL.B. Summer School in Berlin from 19 to 23 June

The EDELNet Partnership is delighted to announce that we are inviting applications to the annual EDELNet LL.B. Summer School that this year will take place in Berlin from 19 to 23 June. As in previous years, 30-40 students from the FernUniversität Hagen (Germany), the Open Universiteit (Netherlands), UNED (Spain), Open University (UK) and the University of Wroclaw (Poland) will meet at a wonderful location in the EU and have the opportunity to work together in a series of activating seminars and simulations designed to offer a high quality learning experience and gain insight into constitutional and legislative processes, rule of law operations and other vital aspects of legal systems in liberal democracies. In addition, participants will get a valuable chance to have a meaningful exchange with students and instructors from other European jurisdictions in an institutionally supportive and intellectually challenging environment.

The programme begins with an online preparatory phase in April 2023 during which participants are expected to take a few short online courses. Structured around the professional processing of hypothetical case simulations, the face-to-face part of the programme will focus on the performance of legal professional tasks to help students become aware of the intricacies of the real operation of law in practice and learn how to argue using the language of the law in different legal contexts. In the course of the programme you will receive well-structured and intensive training not only in legal matters, but also in soft skills such as academic debate, legal English, intercultural communication and team work.

Successful applicants are expected to be registered as LLB students at one of the organizing institutions and have a good command of English. Applications should be submitted by 15 March and include motivation letter, a transcript of records of previous courses and a CV.

Participants are expected to make their own travel arrangements. There will be some recommendations for accommodation in Berlin for all participants.
