The University of Southampton party will consist of 3 LLM students, 2 LLM IT & Telecoms (distance learning), 1 LLB finalist, 1 PhD Law and 1 PhD DTC WebScience student. The inclusion of these lucky students at the prestigious event in Reichenau, Austria, 31 July - 5 August is largely due to the efforts of Visiting Professor Sylvia Kierkegaard.

From 2011 the Summer School will be organized by the European Academy of Law and ICT The 2011 Summer School is co-funded by Co-Reach IPR in New Media
