Bachelor programmes are both taught in English and have a three year duration. Admission procedures for the Bachelor programmes have now started. Our Bachelor programmes:
Law and Business
The programme covers issues related to International, Comparative and EU Law, as well as issues related to Economics, Finance, Marketing and Management. It will cover all the topics of a normal law degree, but will do so from a transnational perspective, and it will provide an understanding of the relations between Law and Business. The purpose is to train candidates aiming for positions in business and international legal practice.
Law and Diplomacy
The programme will cover issues related to Law, Economics and International Relations. The programme is offered by RGSL in cooperation with the University of Latvia. The purpose is to train candidates aiming for positions within foreign ministries, international organisations and NGOs, as well as for journalistic work in the media sector. The studies may be continued on all RGSL Masters programmes, for example the LL.M in International and European law.
The teaching at RGSL follows well-established academic traditions, with an international faculty composed of full-time and external professors and lecturers, coming from all over the world. The teaching method is interactive, research-based and directed towards practical application.
Holders of our Bachelor degree may enter the world of law, business, and diplomacy, but may also decide now or later to continue on one of our Masters programmes. These programmes offer either a specialised focus on international and European law, transborder commercial law or a continuation of the interdisciplinary approach such as law and finance and legal linguistics. RGSL graduates have found important positions in law firms, international organisations, and business corporations.
