Course: Summer Law Programs

European Centre for Career Education

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! 17.6. - 2.8. 2019 and 8.7. – 23.7. 2019

The Law Summer program offers you the possibility of choosing between two specializations, perfectly in line with your goals and/or personal interests.

The New Technology 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 Traditional 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.

Internships

Our internships are just the right experience and will drive the students to new heights.

The internships are 4-5 week work experience sessions arranged at a company chosen for each student according to ECCE test results, with 1-2 students per company. Internships are always under close supervision and guidance of senior company representatives who look after students, coach them and help them grow. The scope of work done by our students during their internships typically includes the practical side of office work, such as research, translations, drafting of documents, writing of memoranda, attending meetings, etc.

The work duties of individual internships are tailored to fit each student’s personal and professional requirements. Students can choose an internship in several international ECCE partners located in various European cities. The internship opportunities range from the largest international companies with a broad scope of activities to smaller and more focused ones. In the past, these included:Dla Piper, Clifford Chance, Bird & Bird, KWM, Kinstellar, Dentons, T-Mobile, Siemensetc.

ECCE partner companies grant reference letters of internships to be more competitive in the future, either for further education application or for job application.

ECCE Grand Reception

Welcome gala evening for ECCE students, which provides an opportunity to meet the inspiring people who contribute to the ECCE community and also to meet other students from other fields of studies (Law and Architecture). In 2019, the Grand Reception will take place in mid-July.
