Wine and Law Program in Champagne, France
The Wine & Law Program of the University of Reims in Champagne, France announced its 2011 summer session on Wine Law in the EU. The program takes place June 20th through July 11th and includes a two-week, intense course (entirely in English) focusing on the legal aspects of wine trade with and within the EU. “This year the Program will focus on transatlantic wine trade law. It will examine different aspects of EU and US wine law as well as the relevant legal framework of the WTO. Courses on wine marketing and wine geography will also be offered with special emphasis to EU-US wine trade. And as always, the Summer School is also about wine tasting, sightseeing and socializing. Receptions, visits to Champagne-related sites and special events are organized for the participants.” The program has several prominent wine industry businesses as its sponsors, including La Merne, Epernay, and Moët Hennessy.
