Riga Graduate School of Law

Riga Graduate School of Law was established by agreement between the Latvian and Swedish governments and the Soros Foundation of Latvia. At the same time, the Soros Foundation Latvia provided the building at number 13, Alberta iela as a gift to the newly established Riga Graduate School of Law.

RGSL currently offers 7 master’s programmes leading to master’s degrees in Public International Law and Human Rights, International and European Law, European Union Law and Policy, Transborder Commercial Law, Legal Linguistics, and Law and Finance. Starting in 2010, the School added 2 bachelor programmes to the portfolio of its 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. In addition, a joint PhD programme started in 2013 in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen.

The school holds regular guest lectures, yearly conferences and workshops, discussions and public debates led by highly qualified international and local experts. The RGSL is also involved in a number of large-scale research projects, receiving the only grant among Latvian institutions in 2012 from the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme.
