Diploma in English Law and Legal Skills
The Diploma in English Law and Practical Legal Skills (DELLS) is organized and taught by the English educational charity Juris Angliae Scientia (JAS) and the British Law Centre (BLC). Its members include Lord Carnwath of the UK's Supreme Court, academic staff of Cambridge University Law Faculty and other distinguished members of the judiciary and academia.
The Diploma is taught in Sofia at St. Kliment Ohridski University during 8 monthly (weekend) teaching visits between November-June. Each visit lasts for 4 hours and is delivered in an interactive and practical manner by experienced British lawyers and academics. Additional contact time with the teaching team, plus additional lectures, written and video materials are available via a dedicated website.
The Diploma teaches core aspects of English law (inc. constitutional law, contract law, torts and trusts) and uses practical exercises to help students develop a portfolio of practical legal skills (inc. legal writing, litigation strategy, oral and written advocacy, contract negotiations/drafting etc.).
The Diploma is designed for law students or anyone wishing to broaden their horizons and improve their English language, while learning substantive law and practical legal skills.
The small-group teaching style means that places are limited, so early applications are encouraged.
