About

This uniquely designed and cutting-edge three year taught undergraduate degree program in European Law and Governance Studies at the ELGS - European Law and Governance School, also known as the ELGS degree, lies at the heart of the mission of the ELGS, which is to offer students an in-depth and interdisciplinary look at key issues of law and governance in the European Union.

Overview

The European Law and Governance Studies program offered by the ELGS - European Law and Governance School provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the world of law and contemporary governance, with a focus on the European Union.  

Moreover, this program will grant students the opportunity to develop critical skills and valuable professional experience that will prepare them for life after graduation. 

 This pioneering program fills a gap in education about the EU, its laws, and how it is governed by providing students with a unique interdisciplinary background that will allow them to comprehend its complex reality and interrelated aspects. Students have the ability to combine 2 disciplines and follow the first two years the discipline of their primary choice i.e. the LLB in European law program and the last year the other i.e. the BA in European Governance program, or vice versa. This grants students the option of personalizing their studies as much as possible, depending upon what they hope to do in their future careers.

Program Benefits 

This program enables students to better understand the current context, framework, and long-term objectives of the EU in its mission for the full integration of member states and also enables students a great degree of flexibility, mobility, and personalization of their studies. Through the many partnerships of the ELGS, or by the Master path of the ELGS students can further specialize in any of the specific subject areas of the program.
