Global Law and Governance Summer School is a pioneering initiative of the European Public Law Organization (EPLO), that was developed in collaboration with the Global Network of Greek Lawyers working abroad (GNGL) and is hosted at the coastal installations of EPLO at Sounion, Greece.

Global Law and Governance Summer School offers an intensive full week summer program (20-24 July) 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 is not a traditional summer school with introductory courses in different areas of law or social science. Instead, it operates 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.

Students will be 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 classparticipation will be encouraged.
