The Geneva Internet L@w Summer School, organised by the Univesity of Geneva, will be held on 19-30 June.
The school will give students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the framework of an Internet law clinic and to discuss cutting edge Internet law and policy issues with academics, practitioners, representatives of global policy makers, international organisations and leading institutions, including the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, the International Telecommunication Union, the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the Geneva Internet Platform.
Topics that will be covered include cybersecurity, e-commerce, consumer protection, legal issues of social media, Internet and telecom infrastructure, data protection, intellectual property, antitrust, etc.
In the previous years (2014, 2015 and 2016), the Geneva Internet L@w Summer School gathered a group of highly talented participants from very diverse backgrounds and countries, including Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, France, Germany, India, Italy, Jordania, Lithuania, Pakistan, Ukraine and the US.
The summer school includes an exciting social programme, with excursions and social gatherings, and affords the fantastic opportunity to build a global network of new friends as well as of Internet law and policy experts. Students will receive a certificate for completing the summer school. The equivalence of 6 ECTS credits can be obtained (to be validated by the home university) upon submission of a paper.
Interested individuals can apply until 1 March (for the early bird tuition fee) and 1 May (final deadline).
