Studia prawnicze w USA – webinar

Chcesz dowiedzieć się więcej o studiach prawniczych w USA? Zapraszamy do udziału w webinarze 21 czerwca 2022 r. o godzinie 16:00 czasu polskiego. Prof. George E. Edwards z Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, autor publikacji „LL.M. Roadmap” (obowiązkowej lektury dla osób, którym marzy się edukacja i kariera prawnicza w USA), opowie o różnych typach studiów prawniczych w USA, wymaganiach rekrutacyjnych dla studentów międzynarodowych, kosztach studiów i dostępnych możliwościach dofinansowania.

W trakcie spotkania będzie możliwość zadawania swoich pytań (na czacie lub głosowo).
