Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) is a top tier law school in the Baltic region. Bachelor, Masters & Doctoral studies.
Since its establishment in 1998, RGSL has been offering high-level master’s programmes on subjects related to international law. Today the School offers master’s degrees in International and European Law, Public International Law and Human Rights, European Union Law and Policy, Transborder Commercial Law and Law and Finance. These programmes attract students from Latvia and the Baltic region, but also to a large extent from EU neighbourhood countries, CIS states, and increasingly from the rest of Europe and overseas. The diverse composition of the student body is one of the School’s main assets, as it contributes to a highly stimulating learning environment for both students and teachers.
Starting in September 2010, we have added two bachelor level programmes to the RGSL portfolio of activities. Both programmes are interdisciplinary in nature with a primary focus on law – one is devoted to the study of Law and Diplomacy, the other to Law and Business. This has so far been a tremendous success, as it extends the possibility of studying at RGSL to a new generation of Latvian and international students. Holders of our Bachelor degree may enter the world of law, business, and diplomacy, but may also decide to continue in one of our master’s programmes. Many RGSL graduates have found important positions in law firms, international organisations, and business corporations.
Adding to these established activities, we also launched a PhD programme in cooperation with prestigious international partners. Today, holding a PhD degree is of great importance not only for academic careers, but also increasingly for professional career development in general. Continuing the line of our bachelor and masters programmes, we offer a PhD programme both in law and interdisciplinary studies.
RGSL is located in Riga, a city with a strong historical foundation in Europe. It is the capital of Latvia, which forms part of the new frontier of the European Union with many direct connections to
