ABOUT THE CONFERENCE VENUE
The Law Faculty of Charles University was formed in 1348 as one of four faculties of the newly established Charles University. Presently, with more than 4500 students, the Faculty of Law is the largest accredited faculty of law in the Czech Republic. Many Law Faculty alumni hold prominent positions within the justice system, in central and local administration, within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in public service and also in private legal practice and private businesses.
The Law Faculty building is a monument of modern architecture. It was built by Czech architect Ladislav Machoň (1888-1973), a representative of modern classicism and functionalism. The construction was carried out between 1926 and 1929 in accordance with the development design from 1914 made by Jan Kotěra (1871-1923), an architect of international significance, who was a leading figure of Czech modern architecture. The interior of the building is Machoň’s own work.
