Vadym Roshkaniuk holds round table conference on judicial system between Ukrainian and German parties

Most of lawyers find the German legal system to be exemplar, as it is integrated in the laws of many European countries belonging to the Romano-Germanic legal system. The Nordic countries, Poland and even the Russian Empire lived or continue to live under German law.

That was the point made by Mr Vadym Roshkaniuk, Sofiya Law Firm partner and Law Department Dean at the Uzhhorod National University, during an international round table conference titled ‘Current Legal Issues in Ukraine and Germany’, which has been held these recent days at the Uzhhorod National University.

‘Social rights, just as they are, came, in fact, out from a reform implemented by Otto von Bismarck, and we also rely on the experience of Germany in deciding on the pension reform,’ the legal scientist explains. ‘The experience of Germany is therefore critical in this regard.’

During the round table conference, the University’s professors and best students, practicing lawyers and local judges have had an opportunity to talk to Dr. Cornelia Volk, judge of the Hamburg District Court, Dr. Magdalena Pior-Bitomski, professor of the Hamburg University, and Mr. Thomas Ver, former executive judge of the Hamburg Bankruptcy Court, and to compare the manners of operation of the legal systems of the two countries. In fact, this matter dictated the topics to focus on during the discussions.

The organisers of the international round table conference titled ‘Current Legal Issues in Ukraine and Germany’ were the Uzhhorod National University, the Transcarpathia Court of Appeal, the Commercial Court of the Transcarpathia Region, the Institute of Law and Postgraduate Education of the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice, and Sofiya Law Firm.

Sofiya Law Firm scientific advisor, Doctor in Law, Professor Mr Mykhailo Savchyn also attended the event.
