Students who decide to continue their education will be able to apply for national or international masters’ programmes in law, economics, political science, and sociology. The comparative, European and international profile of CEILS graduates may constitute a valid background for the several higher (second-cycle) degrees offered by universities adopting the Bologna Process approach in legal education and beyond.
CEILS students will also be provided with a set of skills that are particularly valuable for accessing careers in the international market of legal professions in the public and private sectors.
Moreover, CEILS graduates could be employed in industry, services or trade sectors, as well as in public or nonprofit private organizations requiring international legal expertise. In particular, certain positions of legal officials or linguistic legal experts may be open to CEILS graduates.
