A PhD Seminar is organised during the summer school. It offers a group of around ten doctoral researchers and students the opportunity to present their PhD project and to receive feedback from a panel of Odysseus Members as well as occasionally a high-level practitioner following the summer school. The seminar is mainly for legal PhDs, but candidates in political science or international relations whose thesis include legal aspects can be accepted in agreement with the organiser. These sessions are in English, but some may be organised in French upon request.
The selected PhDs students need to register to the summer school and pay the registration fees for PhDs. They will follow the entire program as any participant to the summer school in addition to the PhD Seminar of around 10 hours.
