Testimonials

Raphael Luis Pereira Bevilaqua
Raphael Luis Pereira Bevilaqua Prosecutor in Rondônia, Brazil

Living in Oxford for a week and getting to know the legal system of Great Britain and Europe more in depth was a very rewarding experience. It whets your appetite: it gave me the incentive to try for a master’s course here, because there’s an international option which allows you to stay a few months here and a few months in Brazil, writing a thesis. It was a marvellous experience. I’m really satisfied.

This was an incredible experience, the course was really good and the city is beautiful. It was worth doing.

Professor Jonathan Black-Branch
Professor Jonathan Black-Branch Justice of the Peace & Magistrate (Oxfordshire), Professor of International Law, Barrister at Law

It was a great pleasure to offer a lecture on international human rights and to work with the participants to develop a presentation on comparative human rights issues.
The participants were well-informed professionals who readily accepted the challenge of learning about a new system and developing comparative perspectives with a view to identifying good practice to inform and improve their profession practice at home.

Extra Activities

View here some photographs of the extra activities included
in the programme of the courses in 2015:

Law in Britain organizes visits and tours which give participants a real feeling of what English legal tradition and British culture are all about. Activities which have already taken place include: a Seminar at the Law Society in London, with a presentation by Timothy Stow, a British barrister and judge, on his experience as a Barrister – QC (Queen’s Counsel) and as a London Law Court Judge, and by Vitoria Nabas, the first Brazilian lawyer to set up an independent law firm in England. The lectures were followed by a question and answer session.

Lunch in one of London’s oldest pubs, Ye Olde Chesire Cheese (reconstructed after The Great Fire of London which destroyed the city in 1666).

Also in London: a tour with a specialized guide of the principal British legal institutions, including the Royal Courts of Justice and the Old Bailey, finishing with drinks on a terrace with a superb view, opposite St.Paul’s Cathedral.

One of the cultural activities in Oxford was a Shakespeare play presentation in the garden of one of the colleges. And, keeping up with tradition, there was a delicious traditional cream tea one afternoon, with sandwiches and cakes served in one of Hertford College’s historic halls. At the close of the activities there was a gala dinner with presentation of certificates.
