The Summer School has been carefully designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of EU competition law as it is currently applied in practice.
The programme is organised under the umbrella of the Institute of European Studies (IEE) and of its competition law workshops “Mardis du droit de la concurrence”. The IEE, founded in 1964, has been at the forefront of the study of EU law for decades and will provide the ideal academic environment for the Summer School.
The setting of the Summer School in Brussels will create a unique environment that will allow participants in the programme to gain a deeper understanding of EU competition law. The classes are taught by experienced practitioners and officials of the Commission Directorate General for Competition and Legal Service and of the Court of Justice. The small size of the classes will allow for interactive exchanges with the faculty and the other students.
From Monday 4 September until Saturday 9 September 2017
