Course description:

The course is open to interested participants from academia (undergraduate students in higher years of study, postgraduate students, doctoral candidates), practice (governmental institutions, NGO etc.), journalists and others.

The course format foresees the active involvement of participants through their participation in the moot court competition, as well as through the less formal discussions during the free time. Interested participants will have the possibility to present their own papers/PhD projects relevant to the topics before a competent panel of senior researchers and professionals.

The enrollment and participation is free of charge but participants are required to pay a 40 Euro fee to the IUC Dubrovnik upon arrival. The participation/attendance certificate issued by the course director and IUC Dubrovnik can be recognized by the Zagreb Faculty of Law as equivalent to 4 ECTS points. For covering travel and accomodation expensses, we strongly advise interested participants to contact their home institutions as well as other fundations that finance educational courses - we can provide interested participants with formal invitation letters if needed. The on-line application procedure is open until the 19th February 2016. For further questions please contact Course coordinator Mr Aleksandar Marsavelski (aleksandar.marsavelski@pravo.hr).
