Hear from our students

Moritz Wagner
Germany

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.

Marta Cera
Latvia

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.

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
