The Center for Constitutional Studies and Democratic Development (CCSDD) at the Johns Hopkins University SAIS Europe (Bologna, Italy) is pleased to announce the new edition of the Summer School “European Union and Legal Reform”, which will be organized as an online event from May 31 – June 4, 2021.

The Summer School brings together students, scholars and young legal practitioners from all the European area, including the Balkans, to study the constitutional implications of European Union expansion. It provides a forum through which knowledge is exchanged, discussion is encouraged and young leaders work to improve the legal environment of Central and Eastern Europe and to smooth the process of accession to the EU.

The vision of the EU & Legal Reform Summer School is to create a dynamic network of scholars and practitioners who will work to enact critical reforms as the EU expands. For the past 15 years we have worked towards this goal in three ways:
We have brought together a diverse group of young legal scholars who we hope will eventually assist in legal reform and European integration processes in their respective countries and on the EU level.

We have initiated a fruitful exchange of experiences and best practices during and after the Summer School that may lead to future transnational projects. We have published Igalo Series, a selection of reviewed student essays inspired by the presentations and discussions that occurred during each Summer School.
