From 3 July to 16 July 2022, the summer school with the topic "Economic & Investment Law" took place at the Europa-Institut in cooperation with Prince Sultan University Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Twenty students from the College of Law of Riyadh University took part in the summer school. Over a period of two weeks, the students expanded their knowledge of European and international business and investment law.
Renowned international experts in this field were present and gave exciting lectures on international business and investment law, international trade law, international dispute resolution and arbitration, investment law and much more. This gave the students the opportunity to ask questions to the experts and to actively exchange ideas. The lecturers are academics or practitioners who gave an insight into the EU.
In addition, the students had the opportunity to take part in three days of exciting excursions to European institutions in Germany, but also in the neighboring countries of France and Luxembourg. They visited the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, the European Central Bank in Frankfurt am Main and the European Court of Auditors in Luxembourg. They not only gained insight into the facilities of the institutions, but also into the work of the individual institutions. This gave the students an overview of the concept of the European institutions and how they interact with each other.
We are very much looking forward to future cooperation!
