Read more about Professor Nedyalko Deklchev

In 1985 Nedyalko Delchev studied Literature in Veliko Tarnovo University, where he received a headache and was bored to death by scholastic course offerings. Next academic year he moved to Sofia and started his studies in the Law Department of Sofia University. For the next two years his family was happily foreseeing him in a velvet outfit, proclaiming justice, and performing up to the expectations of the respectful status quo. However, the stage of the court seemed to be too narrow for Delchev, and he suddenly derailed from what his parents thought would be a very promising career in law.
