Hear from our students

Viola Karjalainen
Finland

“I first came across with RGSL when I was searching for a law school that provides bachelor programs in English. I then noticed that the university will be presented at the student fair “Studia” in Helsinki, and after talking with the representatives there I decided to apply. I am extremely happy with my choice; the past three years in RGSL have been truly amazing.

Reinis Znotiņš
Latvia

Some say law is not a profession but a way of thinking…. I was lucky; I got that and much more from my time at RGSL. Now I can refer to myself as a person with a start-up mentality, one who is ready to move fast and change the status quo, but at the same time stand firm with both my feet on the ground.

Katariina Komulainen
Finland

“I found RGSL after 4 months of Googling and having idea of third-degree in law outside of Finland but within a reasonable distance. RGSL studies are extremely student orientated. In Finland, the emphasis is on conservative and subject-based teaching and learning whereas RGSL has adopted agile and continuous improvement in their core functions that enable the student satisfaction to be high at a constant rate.”
