Classes will be held at the University of Bialystok's Faculty of Law, one of Poland's top universities and law schools. Students will also have access to the vibrant academic and legal community at the University; and they will experience Polish courtrooms, court proceedings, and government institutions.
Students may use the Faculty Library's reading room which guarantees access to variety of sources in English, wireless Internet and assistance of library staff. The University Library (located across the park from the law building) offers large reading rooms, as well as separate closed-seminar rooms and individual work carrels to study. Each of those is equipped with computers and printers. In addition, the recently opened Center of European Documentation of the Faculty of Law at the University Library provides additional study space as well as access to European documents and publications. Both libraries are open 7 days a week.
In addition, there is a restaurant/cafe in the Faculty of Law’s basement with three large rooms and outside tables.
