The Summer School was organised by the Academy for European Private Law, in collaboration with the University of Salzburg and leading universities around the world, took place in Salzburg (Austria) from 4–16 July 2022.

In the course of two weeks more than 40 professors, some of which are ELI Members, as well as several justices from Supreme Courts and the former AG of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), Verica Trstenjak, gave lectures to students on key aspects of more than 30 different legal systems and on European law.

Issues which matter to comparative and international lawyers in particular were discussed through round tables (such as law and language, mixed legal systems, legal transplants, methodology in comparative law, European harmonisation of private law and how to read the decisions of various supreme courts).
