Human Rights in International Commercial Relationships
The 1st edition of NILS International Summer School took place in Bucharest, Romania from the 4th of July till the 11th of July, 2016. The lectures were held at the Faculty of Law, University of Bucharest, which is one of the most renowned and consistently high-rated law faculties in Central-Eastern Europe.
The theme of the Summer School was 'Human Rights in International Commercial Relationships'. Students from 15 countries took part at this summer school from European countries like Greece, Netherland and Belgium, to countries like India, Taiwan, Iran or Georgia.
After a lot of work selecting applicants, helping those in need to get their visas, preparing lectures and solving many situations that appeared along the way on 4th of July 2016 we saw our project becoming reality and 50 students from 15 countries came to Bucharest for a week.
The week was filled with lectures, workshops and visits to different touristic objectives of beautiful Bucharest. Even though people came from thousands of miles away they didn’t have any problem in getting along, all of them being united by their love for law. The day ended with a dinner at a local restaurant where everyone got a taste of the Romanian food and had some fun.
The week that passed was one to rule them all, one during which we managed to realise what we thought was impossible. On the final day of the Summer School, as the participants started to live one by one we felt like something was breaking from us and we couldn’t believe that it ended, but there is always a next time and this is how it will be with this project. Next year we will be better, and considering how this year had come it will be a hard mission for us at NILS Bucharest but we will not disappoint.
