The blog is based upon the Central European Law Conference for Students (Celsos) that has been organized under the Jean Monnet Project by the University of Maribor, Faculty of Law in March 2016.
The conference was an ambitious project funded by the European Commission, aiming to create a central and south-eastern European forum for addressing topical questions of EU law. The main goal of this conference was to discuss topical issues of EU law relevant to the EU as a whole, and to send out a strong message about the importance of EU law in establishing rule of law in central and south-eastern European countries.
The conference was shaped so as to bring together the most committed of students as well as first-class professors of EU law, judges, prosecutors and policy-makers at the national and EU level. For three days’ students of all study levels have been discussing and refining their visions and proposals regarding the future of the EU legal system in selected topical areas, together with academics, members of the judiciary, and those in political office.
This conference presented a unique opportunity for students to interact and engage in discussion with one another as well as with distinguished scholars and practitioners involved in European affairs. Furthermore, the conference gave students the opportunity to be a part of and contribute to a project creating a future plan of action for the EU.
Student conferences are not a new concept; however, in this part of Europe law students to date have not been granted opportunities to present their work at an international event, and particularly not in front of such a distinguished panel of experts from across the Europe.
