Law Students: Take Part in INSPIRED Project on Refugee, Migration Law

aab7365eb6623497646fb6fced9b2c8fd3d1d853-img6bd March 19th-23rd, 2018, Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) Law students are invited to take part in the 1-week Innovative Solutions for Practicality and Impact in Refugee and Migration Oriented Education (INSPIRED) studies' programme project, which will take place at MRU.

Six different European universities are taking part in the project including MRU's Law Faculty.

Lecturers from these University Law Schools will be present: Croatia's Josip Juraj Strossmayer University of Osijek (project coordinator); Inholland University of Applied Sciences (Den Haag, Netherlands); University of Pecs (Hungary); London South Bank University (United Kingdom); Northern Ireland's University of Ulster (Associate partner) and MRU.

The goal of the project is to improve the quality of legal education in the field of Refugee and Migration-oriented education at European Law Faculties. It also aims to recognise ECTS points and harmonise law study programmes across partner universities.

The project will result in a joint interdisciplinary learning module on refugee and migration law.

Deadline for MRU Law students to apply for one-week programme: March 5th, 2018. English language B2 skills necessary. More info at:

The project emerged to supply a need to implement a program allowing students to specialize in refugee and migration law. Given the recent events in Europe and elsewhere abroad, Refugee and Migration Law is one of the most current issues in the European Union. The main emphasis of sub-modules will be fundamental rights justice and security and refugee law.

This project is co-funded by the EU Erasmus+ Programme K2 Strategic Partnership in Higher Education programme and will be implemented from October 1st, 2017 to September 30th, 2019.
