Summary

Mardi 2 août 2016, par Gredicc // Summer school 2016

The 2016 Edition of the Summer School in Consumer Law and Policy was a great success. Held in Montreal between from July 4th to 9th, such a success can be attributed to the diversity of participants that we were able to gather together ; were present : (international and Canadian) students, (international and Canadian) professors, lawyers, judges, members of consumer protection organizations, members of governments and other experts in consumer policy. Such a diversity created so many fruitful and enriching discussions. GREDICC is proud to instate, through organizing such an event, so many unforgettable experiences, so many resourceful meetings, so many collaborations projects, so many teachings and sharing that hopefully will stay in the memory of all participants, as well as contribute to the improvement of consumer law and policy all over the world.
