"Building EU’s Future"

From 1st to 10th December 2020

The Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law & Politics would like to invite you to the EU Career Fair organized by the Faculty of Law - iCourts, the Centre for European Politics and the course group for “Retsstat, Demokrati og Europæisk Integration” at the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with student associations and EU institutions. Students at Danish Universities will get to know more about EU-related career paths from key staff of EU institutions and bodies. The fair will also be a perfect opportunity for networking and getting first-hand advice from professionals who successfully pursue an EU career path and have a tangible impact on EU law and policy-making and on the future of the EU. The Fair will help students of different disciplines - such as law, political science, linguistics, history, economics, and so on - to identify the necessary skills and increase their chances for meeting the needs of various institutions and stakeholders within the EU and in Denmark involved in EU affairs. The participants will also have a chance to exchange their views and learn more about specific opportunities in thematic panels.

The Fair will take place remotely via Zoom, except for Thursday 3rd Dec. where the event will be also accessible in person for students at Nanna Berg Auditorium (1st floor, room 9A-1-01) in the Faculty of Law of the University of Copenhagen, Njalsgade 76, DK-2300. Each talk will be accessible through a unique zoom link

No registration is needed.
