Student Profile(s)

Aleksandra Stepniewska

"I discovered the LL.M. on the website of the University and as I practiced as a defence lawyer, I was interested in this particular LL.M. I wanted to broaden my knowledge of criminal law, particularly at European level.
Looking back on the year I spent pursuing the LL.M., there are a couple of things which I highly appreciated. First of all, I liked the way in which the courses were conducted. I appreciated the fact that we were stimulated to prepare for the classes. Furthermore, I enjoyed the setting of the University in Luxembourg City, its multicultural environment and the fact that the Court of Justice was so close.
After I completed the LL.M. I returned to Poland, where I am currently practicing again as a defence lawyer, in the field of criminal law. I regularly practice economic criminal law and I am often involved in examining compliance management systems and in making risk analyses of the criminal liability of managers and members of supervisory boards. I now feel better equipped to represent my clients at the highest level.
The two things, at least on a professional level, which I found most useful were the European approach to criminal law which we were taught and the knowledge of market abuse which I gained.”
