Kipras Stulgys, a third-year student at Kazimieras Simonavičius University (KSU) Law, is seizing the chance to immerse himself in international study at the renowned Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain) through the Erasmus program. His experience abroad has been nothing short of transformative, as he delves into various facets of law while embracing cultural diversity and forging global connections.

Stulgys is focusing his studies on crimes against humanity, exploring the intersection of technology and law, engaging in guest lectures at European Union institutions, and delving into the fundamentals of gender and equal justice. His academic journey abroad is not just about expanding his knowledge but also about fostering a deeper understanding of legal systems and enhancing his intercultural communication skills.

One of the highlights for Stulgys is the vibrant international community at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. It offers a unique opportunity to interact with people from all corners of the globe. He describes this experience as enriching, emphasizing how it has broadened his perspective on legal traditions and facilitated valuable friendships.

Moreover, Stulgys acknowledges the significance of immersing himself in the Spanish language and culture, which has not only aided in his comprehension of different legal systems but has also enriched his overall cultural experience. He underscores the importance of studying abroad in today’s globalized world, emphasizing how it equips students with invaluable skills and insights that transcend borders.

Encouraging his fellow students to seize similar opportunities, Stulgys emphasizes the transformative potential of studying abroad. He urges them to broaden their horizons, emphasizing the enriching nature of international experiences and the importance of embracing diverse perspectives.

The Erasmus+ Combined Intensive Programme “Strengthening the Legal Understanding of the EU Institutions and their Functioning” concluded on March 8th, and left a lasting impact on all participants. Seven dedicated KSU Law students embarked on this educational journey.

Beginning with remote lectures led by seasoned EU lecturers and the esteemed President of the Court of Justice of the European Union, Koen Lenaerts, the programme provided a robust foundation in EU law. After conquering remote sessions and passing a rigorous test, our KSU students journeyed to Belgium to join fellow participants.

In Belgium, the learning continued with immersive studies in international law, complemented by enriching field trips and informal gatherings. A highlight for many was the simulated European Parliament debate and vote at Leuven City Hall, leaving an indelible mark on their understanding of EU governance.

Reflecting on this transformative experience, Benas Mockus, a KSU Law student, expressed gratitude for the opportunity to deepen his knowledge of European Union law while forging meaningful connections with peers from diverse European backgrounds.

This remarkable programme was made possible through the collaboration of the  institutions including the University of Applied Sciences of Leuven, Kazimieras Simonavičius University, Lumsa University, Abertay Dundee University, University of Alba Julia, Leiria Institute, Leiden University of Applied Sciences, IUT Villetaneuse, EPHEC, and Villanueva University.

We invite you to the 4th International Scientific Conference on “Challenges to Modern Law: An International Perspective”, hosted by Kazimieras Simonavicius University in Vilnius.

The conference will be held on May 27–28, 2024, in a hybrid format.

The dynamic and swiftly changing geopolitical landscape necessitates a constant review of legal frameworks, an in-depth examination of conceptual constructs, and an exploration of the feasibility of conceiving novel norms, instruments, and paradigms capable of effectively addressing the multifaceted challenges of our era.

This conference aspires to fulfill its role as a platform for the rigorous analysis of contemporary legal complexities and the assessment of the legal framework’s functionality within national and international communities, ultimately contributing to the advancement of legal scholarship and practice in the evolving legal landscape of our interconnected world.

Participants: Lithuanian and foreign scientists – researchers, lecturers, students, law practitioners, and social partners. The scientific publications of the conference participants will be published in our partners journals.
