NILS International Summer School Bucharest, Romania
Introduction to NILS International Summer School
The purpose of NILS is to unite law students from all around the world in order to share their perspective on law, our slogan being “Contribute to our diversity”.
This project started at a meeting before Christmas with the NILS Bucharest members when we decided to make a project as big as we can and we decided that a summer school would be the main idea behind it. What no one knew was that it would become a lot more.
The preparations for the project started just after the winter holydays and for 6 months we advertised the project through NILS and foreign universities trying to get an exposure as wide as possible to gather our participants, started to search for speakers that could give us the best lectures it was possible and to prepare every single aspect that we had to do.
After gathering applications the first challenge was selecting what applicants could participate and this task wasn’t simple at all. With a big number of countries and way more applicants than the number of participants that we could have, selecting which of them to approve was a very difficult task especially because many people had extremely good applications.
Here at NILS Bucharest we proposed ourselves that we will have a project that would challenge us because this is why we do what we do, we challenge ourselves so that we surpass our possibilities and become better and this project was supposed to be our biggest challenge. As a scholar experience we reached all of our goals and we were very pleased with that. But after a week we realised that we made other things, for one week we gave those that participated the time of their life, we managed to bound friendships, to make people love Bucharest, to make them want to come again and we realised how lucky we were to meet all of those awesome people.
