Artem Kobrin, student from Ukraine:
LL.M. programme “Legal Regulation of Public Administration and Human Rights” gave me unforgettable impressions and provided unique opportunities. I would like to emphasize, that this programme is double degree, which means that after the graduation a student gets not only two diplomas but experience to live and study in two countries - Ukraine and Lithuania. Professional staff provides relevant and necessary knowledge and their professional experience. Among teachers I would like to single out an ex-judge of the European Court of Human Rights, ex-judge of the Lithuanian Constitutional Court, many practicing lawyers and civil servants. The programme is not only about studies, lectures and seminars but it gives the opportunity to conduct an internship at a state institution or law firm. I have visited countless state institutions as a part of the programme. There are other endless opportunities such as studying foreign languages, participation in summer schools as well as in other social events and meetings. Choosing this programme would be one of the best choices in your life and I am sure you will never regret it.
Liliia Antoniuk, student from Ukraine:
Participation in the programme "Legal Regulation of Public Administration and Human Rights" is the best thing which has happened to me. It's not only about studies - it's about life. I will be sincere with you: I do not know what I am going to do further. However, I do know that the experience I have gained the people I have met and the activities I have taken part in have changed my life dramatically. I am very optimistic about the program as it gave me the chance to study and work in four great European countries in two years, namely: Austria, Lithuania, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
