Our resident and guest faculty members are local academics and practitioners, as well as international experts drawn from leading institutions in the world, from EU and other international institutions, as well as from major law firms and international companies.
Our programs attract students from Latvia, the Baltic region, and also, to a large extent, from countries in the EU’s Neighbourhood Program, the CIS and, increasingly, from the rest of Europe and overseas. The diverse composition of our student body is one of the school’s chief assets, and it creates a highly stimulating environment for students and instructors alike.
