Why Aix-en-Provence ?

With more than 300 sunny days per year and a close connection to the sea, Aix-en-Provence is ideal for an adventurous summer. The noble façades lining the Cours Mirabeau and the majestic avenues, hidden squares and elegant fountains of the old town are trace of Aix's status as former capital of the counts of Provence. The city is punctuated by lovely cafés and bars with many terraces where you can sit under the sun. In a nutshell, Aix is a vibrant and irresistible city which you will wish never to leave after coming to our Summer School.

Why Air Law ?

Air Law is the field of law which provides the legal bases for aircraft navigation and governs its organization. Air traffic is growing more quickly than other modes of transport especially in between developed countries. Transport by the air is not only faster in speed but also ignores natural and man-made obstacles faced by road and railways transports, which makes it the ideal mode of transport over long distances.


Why the SLS on Air Law ?

ELSA Aix-Marseille presents the only Summer ELSA Law School in France ! The acuteness of the terrorist threat and the emergence of new technologies are challenging the Law and aviation security Authorities. Bearing this in mind, ELSA Aix-Marseille decided to focus the second edition of its SLS Air Law & Terrorism on aviation security and safety. This project grew out of a double desire : develop the offer of summer universities within ELSA by proposing a new topic, the aviation law, and promote the aeronautical industry of the South of France region. From August the 26th to September the 2nd, we will sensitize you about the geopolitic of terrorism, the protection of territory with the dual aspect (civil & military) and fight against terrorism in the light of aviation security & safety
