Once you are enrolled, The Career Center will assign you a mentor who will guide you through your studies. The active mentoring is a system in which teachers and assistants take the role of your guide during the studies.
Mentors will give you guidelines
The Career Center at the University is constantly available for the students. They will give you information about the studies, and will help you overcome all the problems that you are facing during your studies.
What are the characteristics of a good mentor?
The mentors encourage their students, give advice and are happy when you make progress in your career.

The mentors help you understand where you want to be and how to get there. They will indicate the changes needed to overcome the obstacles in order to improve your professional development.
The main goal of the Faculty of Law is to provide education to students who on a comparative and interdisciplinary approach will gain theoretical and practical foundations for Macedonian law and EU law, as well as for their relevant legal systems.
Finally, I have a motivational message to you: Have optimism, perseverance, be committed and focused on your education that leads to the ultimate goal - success. Be responsible because responsibility is a value and characteristic of good, honest, capable and quality people.
