Hannes Snellman Summer School – Behind Closed Doors

What do we have to offer?

Hannes Snellman Summer School is a two-day event aimed at Finnish and Swedish law students who are interested in networking with Nordic students and lawyers and developing their legal skills.

The topic of this year’s Summer School is “Behind Closed Doors”. The event will revolve around the topic of how disputes are resolved by arbitration – from the strategy and argumentation to the exchange of written submissions and the final hearing. The programme includes lectures and interactive workshops held by practitioners from the legal and corporate world, who confront these issues on a daily basis and who have experience of the strategic considerations of the arbitration process. After the day programme, there will be several opportunities for the participants to socialise with the other students and the Hannes Snellman representatives.

The event takes place at our Stockholm office on 20-21 August 2020. The travel and accommodation costs will be paid for those who are selected into the programme and who will be travelling from outside Stockholm.
