IES LLM and Euromaster students made their traditional visit to the Berlaymont building

The IES LLM (PILC) and Euromaster students made their traditional visit to the Berlaymont building on 7 November. During the meeting, they attended the Press Briefing, given by the Chief spokesperson of the Commission, Margaritis Schinas. The event was lively, with topics ranging from the Italian budget to endocrine disruptors, and BREXIT of course. Following the briefing and a lunch at the Commission, the students were given an exciting briefing on the rule of law in the EU by Professor Ben Smulders, the Head of Cabinet to European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and a professor in PILC. The briefing occurred in the very place where EU policies are debated, the College meeting room on the 9th floor.
