Experience US American style of teaching by renowned professors from leading universities while staying in Basel!

The Summer School offers students the unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the subjects of Law, Business and Economic Policy taking an interdisciplinary and intercultural perspective. The aim of the summer school is to facilitate deepening of the Swiss-American relationship and to understand how US and Europe take different approaches towards tackling societal and business-related problems, and as a consequence, how legal frameworks, policies and regulation differ to address them.

Thanks to the generosity of two private sponsors, students do not have to pay any fee for participating in the summer school program. All it requires is the commitment, engagement and active participation in lectures to benefit most from it. Renowned professors from Georgetown University, New York University and Yale University lead the interactive courses. They cover subjects that include Fundamentals of Law and Economics; Venture Capital; Competition Policy; and Negotiation techniques.

Students enrolled in the master’s program have the opportunity to attend the Master Seminar in Law, Business and Economic Policy (including a trip to Washington DC and New York City) where they present their seminar papers to an international audience. In addition, the program also facilitates public and research events to be held in Basel.
