Université de Genève Summer Programme: Internet Law

  • Crimson Education
  • Switzerland
Summer Program

Description

Topics that will be covered include cybersecurity, digital privacy and online surveillance, free speech, consumer protection, legal issues of social media, dangers of cloud computing, 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, 2016, 2017 and 2018), 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, 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 Internet law and policy experts.

Given the covid-19 crisis and the associated uncertainty, we rearranged the schedule, so that participants can follow the courses online (starting every day at noon in Geneva (UTC+2) in order to comply with different time zones).
