The Complex Immigration Team at Gherson Solicitors was invited to participate in a series of talks organized by the Kutafin Moscow State Law University, one of the largest law schools in Russia.
Our senior solicitor Charles Burnett presented his personal insights on asylum and Human Rights law and the practical implications of his work, as well as his views on the English system of legal education.
The event was also attended by leading lawyers from France and Russia, who gave short presentations on their personal experience as law practitioners in their respective countries.
In addition, the talk involved a discussion of the difference between the English and Russian legal systems, and the systems of legal education in these two countries. Elena Vaina, paralegal at Gherson, shared her experience of studying and working at law firms in Russia and the UK.
This event took place on 18 September 2020. It has been recorded and we will post a videolink in the next few days.
