Student testimonials

Simas Grigonis, Graduate, PhD student at Mykolas Romeris University:
There are really not that many people that can actually understand and explain EU phenomenon. At the current state of development EU is an extremely complex and dynamic system. To get a full picture of how and why EU works historical, economical, political, geopolitical, cultural and other factors must be taken into consideration. Legal factors stand at the very core of EU system holding it all together. Not only EULAWG programme offers the necessary tools to comprehend EU legal architecture, but also is considered as one of the leading EU law programmes in the Eastern Europe by the employees. The knowledge I have acquired were essential in obtaining various positions in law firms and private sector companies and, ultimately, encouraged me to pursue further EU law knowledge in PhD studies. Picking EULAWG was one of the best choices I have ever made.
