Diploma in English Law and Practical Legal Skills

 

The British Law Centre’s Diploma in English Law and Practical Legal Skills is organised by a charity based at the University of Cambridge, Faculty of Law. It’s members include Lord Carnwath of the UK’s Supreme Court. Its Academic Committee is presided over by Professor Richard Fentiman, Dean of the Faculty of Law at Cambridge University.

Participants of the Diploma course study core issues of English law (including contract law, tort, trusts and others) and build a portfolio of practical legal skills (including case management, legal writing, contract drafting, oral advocacy, debating, mooting, interview skills and others).

The Diploma is taught at the University of Gdańsk by native-speaker lecturers who make 8 visits to Gdańsk, especially to each the Diploma. Each study visit lasts for approximately 4 hours (not including extra, voluntary events which participants can join if they wish). The course materials are prepared by experts in their respective fields, including academic staff from Cambridge University and other leading UK Universities. The materials and course teachers are also available at any time via a dedicated course website. All teaching is conducted in English in a practical and interactive manner.

The Diploma is aimed both at law students, practising lawyers and anyone who wishes to improve their English language and legal terminology. Whether you wish to practise as a lawyer or simply improve your written and spoken English whilst developing a range of other skills, the Diploma helps to make your career goals a reality.

The Diploma is well-recognised amongst legal employers and educational institutions, both in Poland and beyond. BLC graduates have already gone on to excel in a wide variety of professional ways, inter alia by working in most of the major international law firms and a variety of legal institutions – for example, Poland’s current Advocate General at the ECJ (Maciej Szpurnar) and judge at the EU’s General Court (Krystyna Kowalik-Bańczyk) are both BLC graduates.

The Diploma is a fee-paying course, but a reduced “earlybird” fee applies until 30th June. To find out more about the Diploma or to apply, please visit our website here. To contact us, please click here.
