I write to thank you for the excellent training program/workshop you conducted for us a few weeks ago in Cairo on 'Contract Drafting'. I have now had an opportunity to review the evaluation forms in detail and they all confirm the very positive feedback we got verbally. The grading across the board was between '4' and '5', i.e. very good and excellent. Participants used words such as 'lively and well structured', ' very beneficial', and 'perfect refreshment on basic legal information'. We look forward to more programmes in Cairo.

It’s with pleasure that I can recommend BLC to any interested party. I can confirm the session that BLC and Deloitte Baku ran together on legal writing for lawyers in the beginning of November 2012 was well delivered and we received great feedback from the students. Thank you and look forward to working together in the future.

I especially appreciate the information and advice you have provided during the seminar. I have gained valuable insight into the Anglo-Saxon legislation system over the seminar. I’m sure it will be very useful in relations with foreign companies. Also I’m very interested in the International Legal English certificate course and will be glad to participate.
