When we teach | BLC Diploma Timetable 2020-2021

BLC teaching is delivered by way of lectures, classes (tutorials and seminars) and online workshops. 

In any “lecture week”, you will (unless otherwise indicated) have lectures on Monday-Friday (18.30-20.00). The dates of the lecture weeks are given in the table below.

In the week after a lecture week, you will have a “class week” to deepen your knowledge of the legal issues that were discussed in the previous week’s lectures.  In each “class week” you will attend one 90-minute tutorial and one 90-minute seminar – i.e.  you will have 3 hours of small-group, interactive classes in each class week. There are eight “class weeks” in total during the Diploma. For details about the available choices for tutorials and seminars, please click here.  Details of how to register online for classes will be sent by email at the beginning of October.
