The University of Belgrade Faculty of Law has ceremoniously marked Krstovdan, Faculty of Law’s Slava celebration on the 27th of September 2016.
Both the current students and alumni attended the ceremony in the main hall of the Faculty, as well as the Minister of Justice of the Republic of Serbia, numerous judges, lawyers and eminent jurists. The occasion has continued with the purpose of celebrating the “Day of the Faculty” in the form of solemn academy in the Faculty’s biggest classroom – amphitheater Radomir Lukić where the guests had a chance to listen to the performance of “Obilić” choir led by the conductor Miodrag Jevtović.
Students were greeted by the Dean of the University of Belgrade Faculty of Philosophy, Prof. Vojislav Jelić who emphasized that: ”It is necessary for the people to live and work as they help each other, are accordingly accessible to each other and understand each other because solitude leads to loneliness”.
