There are two unique Summer Law Programs in cooperation with the Charles University in Prague for you to choose from. Applications for 2019 are now open! June 17, 2019 - August 2, 2019, and July 8, 2019 – August 23, 2019.

ECCE offers two separate thematic branches within each Summer Program in Law. They both overlap in time, but each has its own lectures and assignment of internships. The first Program starts on June 17, 2019. The second Program starts on July 08, 2019. 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 the legal field, and law especially, is something that is connected to most aspects of personal as well as professional lives. Our aim is to prepare future legal practitioners for their careers. We also strive to assist our students with an understanding of the practical sides of the law and its commercial aspects through speaking to leaders from the real world.

What is our approach?The following is how ECCE Summer Program works:


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

The Business Law branch (from July 8, 2019) is ideal for both business and law school bases. It is the right choice when you want to explore business transactions from the business-law perspective. Therefore, it is meant for those who strive to be legal professionals, but also want the insight of executives or entrepreneurs, and for those who desire to become entrepreneurs themselves. In contrast, the Law branch (from June 17, 2019) is meant for future legal professionals who strive to understand the more specialised areas of law such as Energy Law, Capital Markets or Franchising. Both branches are organised under the auspice of Charles University.
