In today's increasingly global world, it is most important to study and gain experience in a truly international environment. The Legal Studies Department has each year about 120 students coming from more than 30 countries. It has alumni from more than 60 countries. Professors specialized in various fields of Comparative Constitutional Law, Human Rights and International Business Law, as well as Law and Economics come from about 20 countries.
Students of the Legal Studies Department also have - besides their diversified and specialized study track - the opportunity to gain further international experience in other countries. The best MA and LL.M students are eligible to spend several months at one of our partner universities to do research for their masters thesis. S.J.D students are eligible for conference travel and research periods abroad. For IBL students, there is also the possibility to participate in the Willem C. Vis International Moot Court competition, while CCL and HR students may join the Jessup Moot Court competition. CCL and HR students can opt for a clinical specialization with an NGO, or alternatively complete internships at various local non-governmental organizations. LL.M and MA students may apart from that apply for the CEU-funded short research grant during the research module.
Outstanding professors from various parts of the world introduce our students to state-of-the-art legal research, reasoning and writing, making them competitive, and capable to work in various fields of legal practice and research after successful graduation.
The brilliant academic study program at Legal Studies Department along with the inspiring, multicultural experience offered by the CEU community, with its unique location at the heart of downtown Budapest, issues every year a number of excellent graduates who keep a lifelong, dear memory of their time at CEU.
