As in previous years, 30 students from the FernUniversität Hagen (Germany), the Open Universiteit (Netherlands), UNED (Spain), Open University (UK) and 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 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 May 2024 during which participants are expected to take a few short online courses and start being accommodated to working in transnational groups. Structured around the professional processing of a hypothetical constitutional law case simulation, 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 constitutional 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.

The following basic information must be observed for the course:
