the third week of PEPP took place from March 19th to March 22nd at the University of Cambridge, where the participants stayed at the premises of Downing College. The academic program consisted of various lectures, a number of which focussed on the role of AI in law. It also included the preparation of a moot court in European private law, which will be conducted during the next PEPP-week. For the moot court, the participants were divided into groups of three and started to prepare their arguments. Moreover, the next share of PEPPers had the opportunity to present their PHD theses. Besides the academic part of the week, the participation in a traditional formal dinner was a highlight. Also, everyone enjoyed exploring the city of Cambridge. As many friendships between PEPPers have developed by now, they can't wait to see each other again in June in Valencia.

The second week of PEPP took place from January 15th to January 19th in the city of Maribor, Slovenia. Its academic programme consisted of insightful lectures as well as two interactive workshops. In addition to that, the first group of participants presented their doctoral research and benefited from lively legal debates that followed. Among the highlights of the week was a daytrip to Ljubljana with visits to the EU Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators and the Slovenian constitutional court, where the PEPPers had the opportunity to engage in a discussion with the court's president. An exciting social programme that included sightseeing, nights out and a wine tasting completed the experience. After this eventful week, everyone is already looking forward to meeting again in March in Cambridge.
