Master’s Programs in Legal Studies, 2014/2015



“ The CEU Legal Studies Department is deeply
committed to encouraging human rights and
democracy debates and that is crucial for students
of today. It has definitely made a marked
difference within my career by focusing on issues
that were not obvious to me before coming to
CEU. I believe that my experience here has made
me a more open-minded person and conscious
of the problems of the world – not only to discuss
them, but to propose a solution. One of my professors
said to me that being the change requires you to
open your mind, listen to those who think
differently than you and come to solutions that
bear in mind all the interested parties in the game. ”
