FLD experience

My name is Isabel Lioba Zachlod and I come from Germany. I study in the Faculté de Droit of the University Catholique de Lille the master 1 on International and European Law. My decision to study on the Catholic University of Lille is based on the offer of an optimal degree program taught 100 % in English, that is an excellent option for an international legal education. The program in English in France is the perfect opportunity to improve the skills in two languages during the same time. The exchange and the interactive lessons in the small classes with the professors about their professional experience from several international law fields is a high benefit. Lille is with the high amount of students a great city to study with many international students.
