I don't know English well enough to do lecturing. I'm not an expert in all spheres of law. However, I'm a good event manager. And this course is for us. I tried to create something really interesting for our law community and concentrate law experts and lawyers interested in professional development in one place.
It is a great challenge for everyone. What does this course mean for me? It's a very challenging project. For presenters it is new experience, for you - new knowledge and real practice both in law and language.
