Lectures will be held in English and the course will comprise a total of 120 hours from April to July 2021.

At the end of the course there will be three days of exercises, with mock litigations and mock negotiations.

Due to the present pandemic emergency the lectures will be held online through the Microsoft Teams platform.

All the participants will have access to video-recordings of the lectures, the presentations and the material of the course, which will be downloadable from a reserved area with a personal password.

Since, according to the Rule 5(2) of the Draft EPLC rules, practical training always requires personal participation, the three days of exercises at the end of the course will be organized when the pandemic situation will be cleared and travelling will not represent a risk.
