We are partnering with Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) School of Law in creating and introducing a new bachelor study programme titled “Law and Fintech” – the first fintech sector-focused study programme in Lithuania.

Our Fintech team has been working with fintech sector participants in the Baltic States and other EU countries as well as Belarus for quite a while. With the rapid growth of this up-and-coming sector and changing legal relations and legal regulation, the need is increasing for specialists who know not only traditional law but also the specifics of financial technologies. We are happy to become an official partner of MRU in this study programme and value the opportunity to share our experience and contribute to the education of future fintech professionals.
