International Media Law Summer School

Since 2005, we have held the International Media Law Summer School every year – a three-week intensive training course on the legal and practical aspects of media regulation. 

The International Media Law Summer School is a professional training program for lawyers seeking to gain in-depth knowledge of a wide range of issues, including freedom of speech and information, media activities, protection of honor, dignity and business reputation, protection of human privacy, broadcasting regulation. The school is designed for media law lawyers and law students who intend to work in the media field.

For three weeks, the students study the issues of regulating television and radio, protecting privacy and freedom of expression, access to information, defamation litigation practices, regulating online information dissemination, regulating campaigning, protecting public morals, copyright, etc.

In the curriculum, we pay particular attention to European standards in the field of media law, in particular the European Convention on Human Rights and the case law of the European Court of Human Rights.
