The foundations for the Iustoria Student Conference were set in 2019, with the aim of promoting student research in the field of legal history. The working languages of the conference are Serbian and English, and students who are eligible to participate are undergraduates and postgraduates of law schools and other faculties of social sciences and humanities. The annual theme for the conference is chosen so as to cover as many historical periods and legal systems as possible, and apart from the presentations of students’ papers, there will also be guest keynote lectures by selected experts. The conference is held on the 25th of March, which is the anniversary date for the Serbian Civil Code of 1844, with the possibility of extending it for 1-2 days more, depending on the number of the applications.
The first Iustoria Conference will be held in 2020, and the theme is “Law Codes and Women”. Due to the epidemic of the coronavirus, the conference is postponed, and will be held on the 14th and 15th of October, 2020. The deadline for submission has been reopened, and it will remain so until the end of May, 2020.
The same programme stays in effect for the new dates, the 14th and 15th of October, until further notice!
