Support for training


The Institute actively assists Swiss Universities in teaching comparative law. It regularly receives visits by groups of students and offers ready-made seminars in comparative law which provide the students an initial practical experience with foreign legal systems.

Activities for DOCTORAL Candidates

The Institute actively participates in the preparation of doctoral candidates. Among other things, in its capacity as an associate member of the Western Swiss University Conference (CUSO), the Institute annually organises an event within the framework of the doctoral programme in law which the CUSO proposes primarily to doctoral students in law who are affiliated with the Member Universities (University of Fribourg, University of Geneva, University of Lausanne and University of Neuchâtel) or partners of the CUSO. The aims of the CUSO’s doctoral programme are to improve the conditions under which candidates write their doctoral theses, by facilitating contacts between researchers in a stimulating academic environment.


Several traineeships are offered each year to students who have obtained a Master’s degree in law.
