Join the unique Summer Law Programs in Dubai, UAE. Applications for 2020 will open in the Autumn!

What is our approach?The following is how ECCEDU Summer Program works:

Law Program

The summer law program in Dubai will span across a range of areas, from general dispute resolution, to law of the seas. It also covers different soft skills which are essential for lawyers, such as negotiation, management and business development. The internships provided to the participants are broad in verticalization in order to extend an even broader variety between the law graduates. The internships will be provided on the basis of the interests of the participants and their evaluation during the initial three weeks of lectures.

Commercial & Contract Law; Drafting Commercial Contracts; Mergers & Acquisitions; Private Equity; Banking & Finance; Securitisation & Capital Markets; Debt Restructuring & Insolvency; Funds; Islamic Finance; Competition / Antitrust Law; Intellectual Property Rights; Maritime Law; International Taxation; Offshore Law (Entity Formation / Investment / Tax Issues); International Commercial Arbitration; International Investment Arbitration; Third Party Funding; Energy & Environment Law; Technology Law; Media Law; Mediation; Legal Negotiation; Advocacy Skills; Business Development & Marketing.

Lectures & Lecturers

All the lecturers are pioneers in their areas of expertise. All the lecturers at ECCE Dubai are Partner-level, and many of them are Managing Partners of their firm or head certain practice areas in their firms. The participants will also get to interact with younger members of international firms and multinational companies, in an informal setup, for them to provide them an insight into the working environment and culture of their workplaces.
