This prestigious event, co-organised by ELSA Athens and Athens PIL, is a collaborative effort aimed at equipping students from around the world with a comprehensive understanding of international investment law.


On Sunday, 23rd July, at the History Museum of the University of Athens, our Senior Associate, Ioannis Charalampopoulos, had the honor of delivering a speech at the opening ceremony. With immense pleasure, Ioannis addressed the importance of our firm’s support and contribution to this remarkable initiative.

Since its inception in 2016, the Summer Law School on International Investment Law has been committed to providing young aspiring lawyers with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the complexities of arbitral tribunals and comprehend the multifaceted aspects of international investment law. Under the academic supervision of Dr. Anastasios Gourgourinis, this event has grown into a transformative educational experience.

At Machas & Partners, we firmly believe in the power of education and professional development. By supporting this Summer School, we aim to foster a deep understanding of this evolving legal branch and enable participants to excel in their future careers.
Our partnership with ELSA Athens and the Organizing Committee of the Summer School has been instrumental in making this event possible. We extend our gratitude to the European Young Lawyers Association of Athens (ELSA Athens) and the Public International Law Research Center of the Law School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Athens PIL) for their unwavering dedication.

To the talented students who have joined from all corners of the world, we extend a warm welcome. This Summer School promises to be a transformative experience, one that will broaden your horizons and equip you with the necessary tools to excel in the field of international investment law.

As Ioannis Charalampopoulos eloquently put it, “Law is not a profession for the faint-hearted; it demands perseverance, intellect, and unwavering passion.” We encourage each participant to embrace the challenges, seize the opportunities, and be bold in their pursuit of legal knowledge. Your journey starts here, and together, we can make it extraordinary. Renowned scholars and practitioners will guide you through the intricacies of this fascinating universe, and skills training workshops will further enhance your educational objectives. We firmly believe that our law firm’s support, combined with the dedication of all involved, will contribute to the resounding success of this Summer School.

As this educational journey unfolds, we hope that each participant leaves with a wealth of knowledge, unforgettable experiences, and a network of like-minded professionals that will shape their future endeavors.
