Hear from our students

Elvīra Krēķe
Latvia

RGSL has undoubtedly helped me to develop, not only as a professional and in gaining the necessary academic knowledge to conquer the labor market, it has also provided me with personal skills which will benefit me throughout life. RGSL provides a variety of opportunities which help us to go beyond borders

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.

Anete Kleinberga

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.
