Dedicated to training students for careers in domestic and international institutions, the masters programme in European Union Law and Policy covers integration, law and policy in the European Union, the union’s internal market and its external relations. The programme’s rich instruction in the intricacies of the European Union and its laws and policies helps to train the next generation of experts in international law and diplomacy.
The programme explores political and legal themes relating to the single market, decision making, justice, security and defense as well as energy and environment.
The highlight of my experience are the relationships that I formed, especially with the professors who came from abroad. They opened up a window of opportunities… the open-minded and broad perspective was guided by the international professors.
The insight into EU and international law gained at RGSL provided a basis for the flexibility necessary to dive into other legal systems really quickly, and made me feel comfortable working in legal systems outside that of my country of qualification as a lawyer.
Most RGSL alumni, including me, like to say that RGSL teaches you a certain “way of thinking” rather than just basic academic knowledge. By using intellectually stimulating and practical approaches, this broad and open minded “way of thinking” has been the key quality RGSL has given me as a young professional.
