NBLO hosts Oxbridge & LSE Networking Drinks in Sofia

28 March 2013

On the 28th March, 2012, NBLO hosted the first in a series of events for graduates and current students of the universities. The event, held at Club Motto, was a huge success: it drew over 30 graduates from the universities, as well as representatives from Davidson college and UCL for a lively evening. We would like to thank The University of Cambridge Society in Bulgaria and The Oxford University Society in Bulgaria for their support of the event.

The evening was a wonderful chance to connect with other Oxbridge and LSE alumni working in Sofia and for the community to mingle. Several exciting new initiatives were discussed, and the event is a good basis future cooperation between alumni groups. We hope that this is one of many events of its type, building on the success of the first.

If you are interested in hearing about future events, or would like to share your ideas about  talks, conferences or other ways to draw on the network, please get in touch with Denny Jicheva (denny.jicheva@newbalkanslawoffice.com).  We would be delighted to hear from you.
