Student testimonials

Linas Vaštakas, Gradute:
The international law programme not only allowed me to meet interesting people, but also gave me access to multiple exciting academic possibilities. I participated a few times in the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in the United States of America, investment and international trade law moot court competitions in the United Kingdom and Romania. I also gained international study and legal work experience in Sweden and the Ukraine, participated in international legal summer schools. All of this revealed the interesting sides of international law to me and inspired me to seek even further legal education.
