Paul - participant of ILSS 2017

"For me the summer school on International Law for Sustainable Societies was absolutely amazing for many reasons. The academic team was made up of industry experts and policy makers who deployed best intellectuals endeavors to revealing the legal regime, the shades and nuances of the subject. The course content was rich and the teaching style was absolutely incredible. No other environment could have supported learning like Groningen did! I am surely a better practitioner now as knowledge gained will be deployed towards my job performance and my foundation. I hope to return to study for my LLM at the University of Groningen."
