Paris Lodron University of Salzburg

Summer School European Private Law

The FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School has an Inter-institutional agreement with the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg under the Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 1: Learning mobility for higher education students and staff), for the Call Years 2021-2027. 

As part of this agreement, students from FGV Rio de Janeiro Law School have the opportunity to qualify and participate in the European Private Law Summer School held at the Law Faculty of the University of Salzburg. Professor Paula Wojcikiewicz Almeida is the Brazilian representative and faculty member at the Summer School. This initiative demonstrates FGV's commitment to fostering academic exchange and to promoting a deeper understanding of the complex legal dynamics between the European Union and South American’ states.

The Academy for European Private Law offers, in collaboration with the University of Salzburg and leading universities around the world, a programme aimed at understanding different legal systems and their underlying principles in private law. The programme is organised as a Summer School, in which students are familiarised with the essentials of more than 30 different legal systems during two weeks. More than 40 professors as well as several Justices from Supreme Courts and/or the ECJ attend.


Issues which matter to comparative and international lawyers (such as law and language, mixed legal systems, legal transplants, methodology in comparative law, European harmonisation of private law or how to read the decisions of various supreme courts) are also discussed and further developed during round tables. Participants have the possibility to get a more practical view of the differences between legal systems during the workshops, where case studies are discussed in order to show how the same facts may or may not lead to different results in various legal systems. 

Since 2015, Professor Paula Wojcikiewicz Almeida has been a visiting professor at the Paris Lodron Universität Salzburg Summer School.
