The 2015 Madrid Summer Institute will include organized field trips to Spanish legal institutions. Note that the details of these site visits are subject to change.

The tentative plan is for students to do two site visits in 2015. First, students will visit the Madrid Bar Association, where they will hear a presentation from a partner at the Thomas Cooper Firm, a law firm with offices throughout Europe. The firm’s legal specialties include insurance, aviation, shipping, and international arbitration. A partner at the firm will meet with students to discuss how an international law practice works in Europe.

Second, students will visit the Asociación Europea de Arbitraje (AEADE), the European Arbitration Association. This organization mainly focuses on the promotion of arbitration and mediation as conflict resolution mechanisms. On this trip, students will learn how arbitration works in the European Union.
