The next GRiM Winter School takes place in February 2017 at Stockholm University.


Participation in GRiM is open to all postgradaute law students (after having obtained a basic degree in law: LL.M.-students, PhD research students in law).

Successful applicants are expected to attend all parts of the module programme during course weeks in Stockholm and actively contribute to course exercises and discussions.


Participants will be asked a moderate tuition fee and have to bear their own travel and subsistence costs.
