This is a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the framework of a Digital law clinic and to discuss cutting edge Digital law and policy issues with academics (including researchers participating in the Digital Law 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, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), the Digital Law Summer School (formerly Internet Law Summer School) gathered a group of highly talented participants from very diverse backgrounds and countries, including Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lithuania, Moldova, Pakistan, Russia, the Netherlands, the UK, the US and Ukraine.

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 Digital law and policy experts.
