"Under today's talks we discussed the specialized English studying on the basis of the Academy of public administration.

"We could consider not only the training of judges, but also legal practitioners. As it is known, Kazakhstan students study in many universities of the UK, of course, we would be interested in providing our education directly in Kazakhstan,” Paul Boyle said.

"Today we have two training programs for the legal practitioners through Bolashak scholarship based on TheCityUK London Corporation. There are four our students there.

In April the seven-month retraining program for judges and legal practitioners will start especially for AIFC and Arbitration Centre,” S. Nurbek said.
