The ELSA Law School is aimed at law students and young lawyers interested in dispute resolution. Although ELSA Members and applicants with dispute resolution experience have some privileges, non-ELSA-members and applicants without any previous experience in international dispute resolution are more than welcome to join the ELSA Law School in Vienna. Of course, beeing a law student or young graduate of law is a prerequisite.

We are determined to select a similar number of women and men from as many different nations as possible. However, the number of participants is limited to 42!

Application Deadline:

The application deadline starts on 5 April and ends on 5 May 2015!


One of our goals is to form a group of young and open-minded people who on one hand will get an insight into the world of dispute resolution and on the other hand will get to know each other. Therefore, the participants have to attend both the academic and social program throughout all seven days.
