Prof. dr. Regina Valutytė, Programme Director:

The EULAWG Master programme is a unique alliance between a University in an older member State and a University in a “new” member State, that provides a strong and thorough study programme of all areas of EU Law, both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. The lectures are given by specialists from France, Lithuania and other countries by Lawyers and Economists, academics and professionals. The programme is open to students from all countries and the lectures are all in English. It is also, and maybe most importantly, open to people who are already working, whether in the public or the private sector, and who wish to improve their knowledge of European legal developments. The work of the European Union is now is a part of every area of day-to-day life, in politics, public administration and business. It is therefore necessary to master this new legal environment and the skills acquired through the programme will, undoubtedly be a booster for most careers and businesses.

STUDENTS EXPERIENCE
Simas Grigonis, Graduate, PhD student at Mykolas Romeris University:
There are really not that many people who 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.
