Dispute Resolution ELSA Odessa, Ukraine

O

n the behalf of ELSA Odessa Ukraine is happy to welcome you to attend our 3rd Summer Law School on Maritime Law: Dispute Resolution. It’s a big honor for us to have an opportunity to host our international guest in Odessa where they will be able to combine a hard work with a big pleasure, interesting lectures with exciting social program. What can be better than a fresh breeze from the sea in the morning and a nice sunbathes after lectures. Maritime law is among the oldest branches of law. In every country in

8

which maritime law exists, it is treated as a separate and distinct area of the law. In general terms, maritime law concerns events and transactions that occur on navigable waters, whether oceans, gulf, or inland waterways. Although initially concerned with maritime commerce, the body of law has expanded to address contemporary issues such as those involving the environment and the wide-spread use of recreational vessels. Mark Twain, who visited Odessa on board the Quaker City, wrote about Odessa: “ Wherever we look, to the right, to the left – America is everywhere in front of us”.

Legal Challenges n Media Law ELSA UCP Lisbon, Portugal

N

owadays the world is like a global village: we are able to experience an event happening in that precise moment across the world or even to meet someone a thousand miles away without leaving our home. Everything and everyone is only a click away. This became possible due to media devel-

16

opments and tools: the press, social networks, telecommunications, the internet itself, it all makes it easier for us. But how does it work? Is there any limitation to the power of the media? Should there be any? How can human rights be violated in the process? On the other hand, how can they be protected?


A guide to Summer Law Schools

O

ur goal this year is to focus on a more practical approach of the legal issues at stake and for that we are counting with the honorable presence of the most reputed lawyers in the field, as Anthony Hudson (Media Law specialized Lawyer and Winner of the Chambers Bar awards in 2012) and Gavin Millar Q (Media Law specialized Lawyer, Winner of the Chambers Bar awards in 2012 and co-author of “Media Law and Human Rights” and “Equality and Discrimination Law”), as well as excellent professors and experts in these subject matters, such as Ian Cram (Head of School and Professor of Comparative Constitutional Law in the University of Leeds, currently advising the Law Commission in England as it reviews the

operation of contempt of court laws) and Miguel Gomes (currently responsible for YDreams’ Intellectual Property Management and that has served in the Portuguese IP Commission of the International Chamber of Commerce), among others. So be prepared to discuss topics such as Freedom of Expression, Defamation and Protecting Reputation, Contempt of Court Laws, Human rights and Entertainment, Non-disclosure agreements and other media related issues, as well as to enjoy one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe through an unbelievable social program that we aim to offer you – going to the best beaches, dancing at the trendiest clubs, visiting the most famous monuments.

Design Protection & Piracy Prevention

24


A guide to Summer Law Schools

T

he seminar will focus on intellectual property law with the title, �Design Protection and Piracy Prevention�. Today, design, and especially the right design has a tremendous meaning to consumers worldwide, and companies are spending great amounts on designs that appeals to the consumer. It is therefore of utmost importance that there are international, as well as national law regulations that protects the designs and prevents business competitors in copying them from one another. It is a wide reaching discipline, which includes everything from textile to electronic products. Furthermore, intellectual property law is a relatively new discipline when it comes to law regulation, and we therefore believe that the subject is of high relevance to upcoming lawyers. Intellectual property law is also very international orientated, due to the international conventions that exist on the area, which therefore also makes the seminar interesting for European participants. We are hoping provide the participants with an academic ballast, which they can hopefully bring to use in their future careers. We also wish to point focus towards the development and progress of intellectual property law, both inside the EU, but also worldwide. To ensure a high professionalism and academic level, we will thoroughly pick out lecturers among highly recognized lawyers and specialists, all with experience within intellectual property law from the University of Copenhagen, law firms, private businesses and government authorities. The seminar also includes several social events, and sightseeing tours around Copenhagen will also be available. Furthermore we are planning on visiting museums with relevance to the topic, including Danish Design Center and Fritz Hansen.
