Gibraltar links with Spanish Legal Profession

The first of a series of lectures focussing on the English Legal System was presented on the 22nd of November 2013 at the Garrison Library, Gibraltar to Spanish undergraduates and lawyers by local barrister, Charles Gomez. His aim is to build bridges with the Spanish legal profession and sow seeds for a future law faculty of the University of Gibraltar.

This was the second session in which he delivered a talk on the English legal system, explaining that the Spanish legal system was very different to the English one. Mr Gomez also introduced large historical elements of the system and where Gibraltar fits into the wider picture. .

Mr Gomez has had the cooperation of the Department of Education and the Garrison Library. His aim is to provide Spanish students with an insight into how English Law works and also help them acquire an appreciation of Gibraltar as an advanced legal system..

“I want to try to build bridges,” he said.

The lectures form part of the undergraduate course for law students in the University of Cadiz.

Charles Gomez and Co regularly advises with the assistance of suitably qualified and experienced Spanish lawyers on international issues involving English speaking clients on Spanish matters and vice versa.
