Impressions after the ceremony of Doctor Honoris Causa for Professor Koen LENAERTS

As promised in our news posted on 2 November 2017, we come back with more information and photos regarding the ceremony for awarding the Doctor Honoris Causa distinction to professor Koen Lenaerts, the president of the European Court of Justice. In front of an uncomprehending amphitheatre, with distinguished representatives of the European Court of Justice, Romanian Constitutional Court, ministry of justice, Romanian Supreme Court of Justice, the presidium composed by the rector of the “Nicolae Titulescu” University (professor Gabriel Boroi), together with the President of the Romanian Constitutional Court (professor Valer Dorneanu), the ministry of justice (professor Tudorel Toader), the former Romanian judge of the European Court of Human Rights (professor Corneliu Birsan) and the former president of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (professor Nicolae Popa), rendered the title of Doctor Honoris Causa to professor Lenaerts. After the laudatio articulated by professor Birsan, professor Lenaerts delivered a very powerful speech, with recent examples from the case law of the European Court of Justice. It was a pleasure hearing out professor Lenaerts. Our University is very proud for having him as an ambassador in the world. In order to discover the atmosphere of the ceremony, please find attached a few relevant photos.
