The Europaeum co-sponsored an international conference on The Ideas of Prevention in European Law, which took place on May 4th at Charles University, Prague. The aim of the conference was to explore the somewhat ambiguous and multipurpose concept of "Prevention in Law", which is increasingly employed both in legal academia and in legal practice.
This event was also supported by the Law Faculty at Charles University, the Academy of Judges of the Czech Republic, and the Czech Bar Association. Participants from across Europe took part, including Professor Willem van Boom (Rotterdam, Durham), Professor Luboš Tichý (Prague), Professor Eduard Picker (Tübingen), Dr. Donal Nolan (Oxford), Professor Gerhard Wagner (Bonn), and Professor Helmut Koziol (Vienna).
The new Centre on Comparative Law in Prague hosted a conference from March 17-18th at the Law Faculty of Charles University to look at how relations are evolving between Member States and the EU over infringements of EU law, both in theory and practice. The event on Liability in European Law was co-ordinated by Professor Lubos Tichy, director of the new Comparative Law Centre, with experts coming from a range of member states, along with Europaeum support.
