What we teach

Substantive law: We teach 9 subjects over the 2-year course, each of which is designed to familiarise you with different aspects of the English common law system. We place great emphasis on choosing subjects with which you are most likely to come into direct contact in your professional lives, especially commercial law subjects.  For further details of the various modules see below.

Legal Skills Portfolio: We teach a range of legal skills during the various substantive law modules. These combine to form a skills portfolio which  covers areas that have been identified as being lacking or under-developed amongst young lawyers in Poland. The range of skills includes: Case and Fact Management; Legal Writing; Oral Advocacy and Public Speaking; Mediation; Negotiation; Contract Drafting; Group Work and others.

As a BLC student, you will not only acquire substantive law knowledge and vocabulary, but also a wide range of key skills that help to improve your career prospects.
