Open Day at RGSL. Free study places awarded to the potential students - Pauls Krumins and Elina Reihmane
On 8 March, at the Open Day event of Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL), which was attended by more then 200 potential students, there were drawn two lots for free studies - one of bachelor studies and the other for master studies - for the academic year 2012/2013. The prizes were awarded to:
PAULS KRUMINS (bachelor programme)
ELINA REIHMANE (masters programmes)
The draw of free study places followed a programme composed of a welcome by the rector George Ulrich, a presentation of the study environment and the individual programmes, and a social get together between current and potential students, as well as faculty and staff of RGSL.

'Currently I am studying in the 12th grade of Sigulda State gymnasium. Since this is my last year in high school, I have to look for possibilities what to do in a future. There are many possibilities out there but it is important for me to find what I would like to do and what would be more useful. Recently I was visiting Riga Graduate School of Law to learn more about the school and studies within it. Before that I had heard positive references about the school and I must say I got an affirmation on that. I would like to study Law and Diplomacy since I was the most interested in this study programme before hand. At the moment when my name was called, I was very positively surprised. I am very happy for the opportunity to study in Latvia since that would let me continue to do sports here, in Latvia. Currently, I am playing ice-hockey in the Latvia Championship. It would be my pleasure to join RGSL team. ."

"During my studies in the Intercultural relations section at the Latvian Academy of Culture and my internship at the Embassy of Canada, I gained confidence of willing to continue my career in the fields of both linguistics and/or diplomacy. Therefore, my decision to attend the open days at the RGSL was a deliberate step – I had decided to proceed with my studies in Latvia, on the condition that it would be an education of the highest level possible, and that it would ensure me with a possibility to fulfil both personal and professional challenges. The Legal linguistics programme that I have chosen is attractive not only from the perspective of its contents, but it is also a unique option in the scale of Europe. The draw, which is to my mind, an excellent custom, was just an affirmation that RGSL is going to be the right place for the pursuit of my goals."
