Students from Belarus, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, and Ukraine spent a week at EHU studying the specifics of European and North American legal systems at EHU’s Late Summer School of Comparative Law.
“The lectures are very interactive, we can share our points of view and discuss them with our colleagues. Also, we had a moot court practice, which is a great way to practice advocacy skills,” says EHU alumna Krystsina Karahina (LLB International Law, 2013).
The school included lectures, judicial case analyses, and discussions led by legal experts from the region, including Dr. Thomas Hoffmann (German Academic Exchange Service scholar, University of Tartu, Estonia), Dr. Christoph Schewe (German Academic Exchange Service scholar, University of Latvia), and Dr. Oleg Bresky (European Humanities University, Lithuania).
“The seminars I’ve attended before were quite impersonal. This seminar is well-structured, friendly, and inviting. Lectures are presented from different points of view, which gives you different perspectives, and also dedicate enough time to ask follow-up questions,” says Ricardo Brehme, Comparative and European Law student from the University of Bremen.
The Late Summer School of Comparative Law was organized by EHU’s Center for German Studies in partnership with the departments of law at EHU and Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) and the European Law Students' Association at MRU. The summer school was supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
