Two unique Summer Law Programs in cooperation with the Charles University in Prague for you to choose. Applications for 2018 are now open! 18.6.2018 - 3.8.2018 a 9.7.2018 - 24.8.2018

ECCE offers two separate thematic branches within each Summer Program in Law. They both overlap in time, but each has its own lectures and due assignments of internships. The first Programme starts on June 18, 2018. The second Programme starts on July 09, 2018. Both of them are awarded 4 ECTS credits for every successful graduate.

Participation in the Law Program is of interest not only for law school students. Both of our branches can be viewed as resourceful in almost any area. Broadening the horizon is a part of personal growth and a better understanding of legal field and law especially is something that is connected to most aspects of personal as well as work lives.
Our aim is to prepare future legal practitioners for their careers. We strive to assist our students also with an understanding of practical sides of the law and its commercial aspects through speaking to leaders from real life world.

What is our approach?Here is how ECCE Summer Program works.


Law Summer program offers you a possibility to choose between two specialisations. Perfectly in line with your goals or/and personal interests. Also, the internships are unique for each of the courses in order to extend even broader variety in between both groups of graduates.

Business Law branch (from 10 July 2017) is ideal for both business and law school base. It is the right choice when you want to explore business transactions from the business-law perspective.

Contrary, the Law branch (from 19 June 2017) is meant for future legal professionals who strive to understand more specialised areas of law such as Energy Law, Capital Markets or Franchising. Both branches are organised under the auspice of Charles University.
