Terms and Conditions

Principles

By enrolling in the School of American Law you accept the encouragement to treat it as a unique opportunity of improving your language skills and your knowledge of the American law. You are therefore expected to be active and treat your duties - as to the participation in the classes, the exams and the payments - diligently and with due care.

You are recommended to reconsider your enrollment if you are not certain of your capabilities (including your language skills sufficient to speak and write fluently in English) allowing you to maximize the personal improvement opportunities the School offers.

By enrolling in the School you also commit that:

A) you will participate in the classes and will take the exams according to the rules set by those Terms and by the instructors;

B) your exams will be entirely your own sole work, framed in your own words and reflecting your own reasoning;

C) your exams will not violate Copyright Laws and in particular you will not use Intellectual Property of others as yours; violating this rule in an exam automatically and irrevocably leads to failing the exam;

D) you will pay fees according to those Terms;

E) you will obey those Terms and any further rules determined by the instructors or the Management of the School.

Detailed rules:

Requests for accepting belated exams are to be directed to the Manager of the School - Prof. Dariusz Adamski (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). The request is rejected unless the delay is not entirely independent of the student. The student fails the exam in case his/her request is rejected.

4. Students may receive Certificates of completing the School.

The Certificates are issued to those students who pass 90% of the exams. The Certificates confirm that the student has completed the curriculum comprising the courses listed on the second page of the Certificate. Unless otherwise requested by the student, grades obtained are disclosed in the Certificate.

Students shall receive a Certificate with distinction, if they receive an average grade 3.2 based on all courses, where grades are ranked as follows: D = 1; C = 2; B = 3; A = 4, or a Certificate with great distinction, if they receive an average grade of at least 3.5 based on all courses.

Students who pass less than 90% of the exams may request a certificate of participating in the School. This type of a Certificate indicates courses failed and passed and grades of the courses passed.

5. Tuition fees are determined for each year separately by the Management of the School.  

Each payment is to be made to the following bank account:
