• Andrii Husakivskyi (Graduate)
Intellectual Property Law master double degree programme at Mykolas Romeris University offers a unique opportunity to grasp new knowledge and to get insights related to topical issues in the realm of intellectual property law. It focuses not merely on the theoretical background of legal protection of intellectual property, but also considers practical aspects of it’s regulation, thereby tailoring theory and practice. Apart from that, this master programme provides possibility to complete internship in other countries of the European Union via Erasmus Traineeship. This respectively allows to increase awareness on current trends in legal advisory abroad as well as to enhance professional capabilities that are necessary to build a successful career. I extracted a considerable positive outcome from this programme and can recommend it to those students who are willing to fulfil their potential in the area of Intellectual Property Law.
