My LLM studies at the IES have been a very rewarding experience for me, academically as well as personally. The LLM at the IES is a well designed programme, which offered me an outstanding postgraduate education. It helped me deepen my knowledge in European and International Law and improve my proficiency in legal English. The classes are taught by highly qualified and successful professors and practitioners, who equip their students with valuable skills that are necessary to pursue a career in European and International Law. Moreover, the LLM was an excellent opportunity to live in another country, to learn about its culture and to meet many interesting people. I am especially grateful that throughout the course of the programme I made friends from all over Europe and the world which enriched my stay in Brussels and made my year abroad even more unique.
Several Directors General at the European Commission; countless Managing Partners, Partners and Associates in leading international law firms; ambassadors; a judge at the ECJ; a Prime Minister; numerous in-house counsels in some of the world's most renowned companies, and I could keep mentioning other examples. The legacy of this programme is undeniable and this is why I chose it.
I am most grateful for my education at PILC/LLM. It helped me immensely in my practice at a significant New York City international law firm, a US government corporation assisting US investment in approximately 120 developing countries, and as part of senior management of a large US corporation operating in some 40 countries.
