Yesterday the management of the Faculty of Law of the University of Latvia invited the academic staff of the faculty – professors, associate professors, lecturers of the Faculty of Law to the opening ceremony of the new academic year. Among them also the Supreme Court Senators, Doctors of Law Kalvis Torgans, Jautrite Briede and Janis Neimanis. The Senator Valda Eilande who wished success to the professors of the Faculty of Law on behalf of the Supreme Court, finds it a good practice that judges are invited to work as professors and lecturers in the university as they have not only theoretical knowledge but also experience of practical work.

For students as well as the academic staff and those connected with this work, September is like a beginning of a new year which comes with new goals, new hopes and desires. Therefore the management of the Faculty of Law – the Dean, Professor Kristine Strade-Rozenberga, the Head of the Council, Professor Sanita Osipova and the Executove Director Anita Braksa together with the academic staff wished to look back to the accomplished in the previous year, and to have an insight in the future work. One of them – to prepare for the 90th anniversary of the Faculty of Law which comes next autumn. Representatives from the Supreme Court, the Prosecutor General Office, the Bar Association and the Students’ Self-management of the Faculty of Law were invited to participate in this event.
