At Ivan Franko National University of Lviv started the VI stage of “Parallel Studies of the Basics of German Law”

SEPTEMBER 21, 2015 – On September 16, 2015, at the Mirror Hall of the University a solemn opening of the VI stage took place. The leading part was performed by the Center of German law of the Faculty of Law. A special guest of the event was deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the Commitee on Legal Affairs and Consumer Protection of the German Bundestag Renate Künast.

On behalf of the administration the guests were welcomed by Vice-Rector for Academic Research, Social Affairs and Development Maryan Lozynskyi: “I am pleased that through cooperation between the German government and the National University of Lviv we fortify good European traditions — legal cooperation and cultural exchange. Thank you for these excellent relations built on trust and mutual support”.

The deputy Chairman of the German Bundestag Renate Künast read a lecture to the course students about features and peculiarities of the legal state in Germany. According to Renate Künast, the legal state is a long process that never ends.

“The key position in the legal state performs the rule of law. The basis of the legal state is as follows: all power belongs to the people which delegates its powers to the leaders of parties through legal elections. The parties and the leaders act as legislative and executive authorities; legislative and executive branches of government are tied to the laws of the country and operate “under the dome of Constitution””— enounced the lecturer.

The Acting Dean of the Faculty of Law Vitaliy Kosovych thanked the German Deputy for the meaningful coverage of relevant topics for the Ukrainian society about building the legal state, and expressed his hope that Renate Künast would initiate the course on the formation of the legal state at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv.
