What do we offer?
Hannes Snellman Summer School is a two-day event aimed at Finnish and Swedish law students who are interested in networking with Nordic students and lawyers as well as developing their legal skills!
The topic of this year’s Summer School is “Win-Win Situation”. The event will revolve around the lifespan of commercial contracts – from drafting and negotiating their terms and conditions to avoiding and resolving disputes arising from them. The programme includes lectures and interactive workshops held by practitioners from the legal and corporate world who confront legal issues relating to contracts on a daily basis and who have experience of the strategic considerations behind the formulation and negotiation of contract terms. After the day programme, there will be several opportunities for the participants to socialise with the other students and Hannes Snellman employees.
Regardless of what legal area you will be working with in the future, contracts will surely be a part of it – which is why this is a perfect opportunity for you to develop your skills!
The event takes place at our Helsinki office on 22-23 August 2019. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered for those who are selected into the programme and will be travelling from outside of Helsinki.
