All courses are lectured by the highest competence specialists from Lithuania and all over the world.
IBL is oriented not so much to the studies of national legal system but more to the studies of international business legal regulation principles, doctrine and legal norms. On the other hand, national component is not completely neglected but analysed more in a comparative perspective.

Therefore, having graduated the IBL, students will be able to work in all spheres where law and international business could converge. The following main spheres of the future professional career of the graduates could be distinguished:
1. Legal profession (lawyers, judges, notaries, bailiffs (in Lithuania – only those with the BA in law);
2. Administration of bankruptcy or restructuration of companies;
3. Administration of companies (being the CEO) with the international component;
4. Legal counselling of companies.
