Hear from our students

Svitlana Yelanska
Ukraine

"Enrolling into RGSL, I didn't know much about the school. All I knew was - I wholeheartedly wanted to study law. After almost two years at RGSL, I'm convinced there's no other place where I would rather be doing that.

Seema Murtuza
Bangladesh

"What made RGSL stand out was its interdisciplinarity. I will forever be indebted to RGSL for the opportunities, experience and friendships it has enabled. RGSL is more than a school, it is a community, a family of students, academics and lecturers alike who are open and willing to go one step beyond what is required; and it is that one extra step that makes RGSL a RGSL.

RGSL is a place where you, apart from your regular studies, are constantly given opportunities to participate in events such as discussions, workshops and moot courts where you add to your professional skills and network with already established professionals in the field, which is one of the many prerequisites for a successful career.
