During the meeting the opportunities for a future cooperation between the Legal and Business Faculties of both universities were discussed.

In the ranking of legal education in Bulgaria the Legal Faculty of UNWE occupies the first place and the second place according to the various criteria of assessment, outlined to guests Prof. Balabanova. There is one specific thing – our Faculty has been part of a Programme in American Law since its establishment in 2006 so traditionally courses in Austrian Law are held and the most disciplines in the speciality are studied in the English language, pointed out the Dean of the Faculty.
