The architecture of Catholic University of Lyon is very remarkable, because it combines the antiquity and modern style or, as they say in France, art-nouveau.

At the University there were very interesting meetings with teachers at the Faculty of Law where some issues concerning specific fields of law – civil law, energy law, economic law and others – were discussed. The university administration gave a possibility to work at the University library, to get acquainted with Faculty structure and the study process.
