Student Profile(s)

Auguste Mutombo

“The Master en Droit et Contentieux de l’UE equips students with in-depth knowledge and experience of substantive, institutional and procedural law of the EU. The programme is based on an approach of active learning through critical analysis of case- law, combined with the study of EU procedurallaw. Modern teaching methods and small group sizes create a great exchange between students and professors. Studying abroad for a semester helped me understand different points of view and legal traditions and I would recommend prospective students to take advantage of this opportunity.
Finally, the international environment of the Master and its multilingual courses were helpful in my career, where I work with colleagues from different backgrounds.”
