Send online request

This tour is aimed at law students who would like to see their study topic turned into practice. It comprises educational visits to institutions and organizations with cultural sights and fun activities. A perfect combination of theory and practice while getting to know European capitals and their people.

The idea is to select a specific topic before the departure of the group that will be discussed during a simulating session which will happen during the last three days of the tour. The session will be like the “Model United Nations” but organized by PDM and an academic institution in Vienna – an academic simulation is meant for addressing global concerns in a real world context. Examples for topics: Personal Identification – Use of Microchips, Nuclear Energy, etc.
