SELS Thessaloniki on Tax Law

For the last 5 years every middle of July, ELSA Thessaloniki combines a specific field of law in a high quality academic programme. Every year, students from all over the world have the chance to get to know the Greek culture, enjoy sight seeing in our beautiful city and take a taste from the traditional delicacies of Thessaloniki. During these days, we have arranged an excursion in Chalkidiki, a seaside place close to Thessaloniki, where participants can swim in crystal clear sea. Social events are held every night to remind them how vibrant the night life in Thessaloniki is.

This year we are more than happy to announce to you the renewal of our Summer School. After many years of Medical Law, our new topic is the European tax law! We are looking forward to seeing your participation in another great experience and welcome you to Thessaloniki!



ELSA Thessaloniki held a three-fold action in the context of ELSA Day to highlight the importance of
informing and advocacy the right to freedom of expression on the Internet.

With the crowning of the public consultation (8 discussion tables-80 participants), which took place on 27 November with the presence of university students, school students and guests from the field of journalism, law and civil society, the Association started a contact and interaction campaign with new students in the city.

Having as a basic rationale that children deserve to learn and offer to the whole project and not stay
away from it, ELSA Thessaloniki has visited public and private schools during November. In these
visits, presented its structure and philosophy, separated the students into working groups and
discussed together with them about useful aspects of the right and finally invited them to the public
consultation in 27 November. Except of schools, the field of Academic Activities has prepared and
addressed an interview with a law school professor who is specializing in personal data protection
issues. This constructive discussion has helped in the academic preparation of the consultation, since
there was a separate discussion table on the European Data Protection regulation.
