The Programme structure – University of Copenhagen

The programme structure

Lectures — Faculty teach a session that is related to their own research interests. They present some of their own work and discuss methodological issues related to researching a specified topic.
Students will have assigned readings (approximately 200 pages) that they prepare in advance.

Working group sessions — Small groups of 5-7 students will be formed based on similarity or complementarity of topics. These groups of students will meet every day with a faculty member and a post-doctoral researcher from iCourts or Pluricourts to work on methodological issues related to their own projects. In order for participants to get diversified input to their work, faculty members will rotate between groups.

Social programme — As an integrated part of the Summer School, iCourts’ PhD students and Postdocs will arrange sightseeing tours in the city of Copenhagen.

Evenings — There will be an informal welcome and closing dinner, where students will get a chance to talk more informally with faculty members and other students. Most evenings will involve homework — doing readings for the next morning’s session, and preparing assignments for the working group session.

A detailed program will be sent to all accepted students
