This is going to be the third session of our Lawyers Talk Shop. And the previous two were great! I'm really proud of the work we did! I met wonderful people that did their best to get the most out of this course. And we got incredible feedback from them. All of this indicates that we are on the right track.

This spring I'll try to gather law experts and lawyers interested in professional development in one place one more time. And here again it is a great challenge. But I can promise you one thing: we'll do our best!
Let's discuss law in English and acquire new knowledge both in law and language!
