Course description

Study Internet Law in Geneva, where the World Wide Web was born!

Topics that will be covered include cybersecurity, consumer protection, legal issues of social media, Internet and telecom infrastructure, data protection, intellectual property, antitrust, and much more...

This is a unique 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 (including researchers participating in the Geneva Internet L@w Research Colloquium), practitioners, representatives of global policy makers, international organizations and leading institutions, including the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the Geneva Internet Platform (GIP).

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.

A video testimony of participants to the 2014 edition is available here!

Students of the summer school 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.

Please note: changes to the draft program may be made at any time prior to the start of the course.
