I chose the master course on European and International Energy Law offered by the Technische Universität Berlin because of its outstanding reputation, highly qualified lecturers, course preference compared to other universities, and proximity to my country, Spain. I wanted to combine my interest on European and International Law with Energy Law, specifically renewable energy issues, and I feel that the course successfully merges the two. The course offers an extremely solid base on competition law, regulatory law and economic fundamentals. The general vibe and dynamic structure of the modules is really enjoyable since we are constantly debating and discussing different issues. I loved the International Regulatory Law classes in particular wherein lectures were delivered by professionals practicing in the field. Lecturers are able to teach you the theory and at the same time tell you about how it works in real life. Looking back, the teaching and constant supervision have been excellent so far. Making this Master in Berlin definitely means outstanding networking opportunities that come with being in the financial, cultural and political center of Europe. My experience at the Technische Universität Berlin has prepared me to take on the challenge of establishing a career in international law.
