Applications are currently open for the opportunity of a lifetime! ELSA UCP Porto (The European Law Students’ Association) has organised an international competition to be held in the city of Oporto. The competition focuses on negotiation and is judged by renown professionals from law firms, universities and other organisations.

The Oporto International Competition will take place between 31st January and 7th February. As the topic of the competition is negotiation, the following are some of the themes to be addressed; Commercial Negotiation, Environmental Negotiation, State Negotiation and Human Rights Negotiation. Working materials will be released to participants one month prior to the competition to allow for adequate preparation.

Throughout the competition participants will be accommodated at Garden House Hostel, which is only a three minute walk from the shopping district and not far from bars and clubs to enjoy all night long. In addition to competing, ELSA have organised a number of social events including a day of sight seeing the best of Oporto, as well as a visit to a vineyard in the Douro Valley’s region. During the time spent in Douro Valley participants will have an opportunity to relax in a five star hotel which has breathtaking views of the river, where students will be able to enjoy their last few days in Portugal in style.

The cost for the entire program (7 nights) for non ELSA members is €400 (approximately $574.85). This fee includes the participation in the competition, working materials, accommodation, transports and meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner and two coffee breaks).
