Students will experience some of the most important steps in cross-border disputes by putting themselves in the shoes of a counsel of one of the parties involved in a transnational litigation.

Students not able to join classes in presence shall opt for attending the course in self-learning modality ("students not attending classes"). Self-learning material, such as case studies drafted for self-learning and self-assessing tests  will be available on  Moodle.
