Attend this intensive 10-day programme on Companies crossing Borders, exploring various legal domains on the basis of a take-over. The summer school takes place from 21 August till 1 September 2017 at the University of Antwerp.
This summer school focuses on key legal considerations for companies crossing borders. This will be done from various perspectives: mergers & acquisitions, (aggressive) tax (planning), labour, intellectual property, insolvency, international contracts, social dumping and human rights.
The summer school includes a case relating to companies involved in a cross-border take-over situation, to be solved by the students in groups throughout the summer school. The students' solutions are discussed interactively and extensively in tutorials from the aforementioned various perspectives.
Students with at least a degree of Bachelor in Laws or Economics or with similar competences (to be assessed on a case-by-case basis) are eligible for this summer school. Students should have a good command of English.
Study credits (ECTS)
Successful completion of the summer school can be awarded with 3 credits according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Credits will be awarded on the basis of participation in class and written reports + an oral presentation of findings relating to the case in the tutorials.
To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at the home institution. A certificate of attendance and completion will be awarded at the end of the programme.
To keep the minds fresh and to maximise interaction, a wide variety of fun and interesting social activities will be organised during evenings and weekends so participants can make the most of their stay in Antwerp.
Participants will not only have the opportunity to get to know their fellow class-mates and staff in a more informal way, but will also be able to get in touch with peers attending other summer schools at the Antwerp Summer University. A visit to the beautiful city hall, a networking reception, a guided city walk, a quiz night, a football game and a day-trip to another Belgian city such as Bruges or Brussels are only some examples of these activities.
All activities of the social programme are offered free of charge, in some cases participants will be asked for a deposit which will be reimbursed upon participation to the activity.
