→ Students Experiences

• Simas Grigonis, Graduate, PhD student at Mykolas Romeris University:

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 employers. 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.

• Anyssa Fatmi and Pauline Lapointe, current French Students:

After a 1st year of Master degree in European Law at Bordeaux University (in France), we were looking for a Second year abroad while having the possibility to obtain a 2nd year Master degree (French Diploma). The EULAWG Programme was offering exactly what we were looking for: lectures in English given by specialist and eminent Professors coming from Lithuania and France, a flexibility on the schedule of lectures allowing students to work, having an internship or just enjoy to our time here, and last but not least, a more interactive way of approaching the lectures with a true participation of the students during lectures or seminars. We also took part in a moot court, a conference, visited the Money Museum and the Lithuanian Central Bank, etc.
The Programme offers us the possibility to make an internship (French Chamber of Commerce in Vilnius and French Minister of Foreign Affairs in Paris), and to volunteer at the University at the International Office.
We still have to write our thesis as the last step before being graduated, but it will be an interesting and formative exercise that we have not always the opportunity to make in France.
