Welcome To
Guden International Law Academy
Guden International Law Academy, which based on the knowledge and experience of Guden International Law Firm has accumulated for many years, is an initiative that aims to strengthen the theoretical understanding of future lawyers while improving their practice in the international arena specifically in the field of technology law.

With the changes around the world, Guden International Law Academy aims to convey knowledge and experience by bringing law students within and outside of Turkey as well as lawyers who are working in the international arena together and plans to contribute to the training of future lawyers by closely following legal developments in technology.

It serves as a workshop where participants will be able to contact professional lawyers from all over the world. They will make invaluable contributions to their career by exchanging ideas with experts who can also be role models for each of the future candidates.

We are aware of the significance of transferring the knowledge and experience we have acquired to the next generations.We feel responsible for supporting our young colleagues, who are still at the beginning of their career, in their first steps and increasing their social, academic, and professional skills with Guden Academy.

We are committed to raise generations who can make a difference with their ideas, create sensitivity on social issues, and contribute to the society they live in and the societies beyond the borders, with the awareness of being an intellectual and conscientious individual.

Are you ready to walk with us?
