Meeting for Civil law and legal culture, this year’s event will exceptionally take place in digital format (entirely online), due to the Paris Olympic Games. The Summer School of civil Law will bring together students and legal professionals from all around the world.

The richness of our Summer School lies in the quality of the education, provided in the prestigious University Panthéon-Assas (Paris II), as well as in the diversity of the legal cultures that are represented.

We are particularly excited by the international dimension of this event, from the participants to the promotion of different legal cultures, offering many opportunities to meet and discuss with others.

There are 4 mandatory courses:
- Introduction to Continental Legal Culture
- European and International Contract Law
- Settlement of International Disputes
- Digital Law – Protection of Personal Data and Artificial intelligence

And 1 optional course, to be chosen from the following 2:
- Environmental Law
- Constitutional Law and Fundamental Freedoms

If successful at the final examination, participants will be awarded a Training Certificate in Civil Law from the University Panthéon-Assas (Paris II).

The Foundation will also organize meetings with leading French legal industry members, including lawyers, notaries, bailiffs, commercial court clerks and company lawyers...
