Inaugural Annual Lecture of the School of Law, UCLan Cyprus. Keynote speaker: His Excellency the Attorney-General of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr. Costas Clerides

On Friday 12 May 2017, the Law School of UCLan Cyprus held its inaugural Annual Lecture at the Cleopatra Hotel in Nicosia.   

The Inaugural Annual Lecture was delivered by His Excellency Mr Costas Clerides, the Attorney-General of the Republic of Cyprus. In his Lecture, Mr Clerides examined the constitutional role of the Attorney-General and then fielded questions from students and other members of the audience on subjects as diverse as the separation of powers and the training of young lawyers. 

The Annual Lecture was attended by various members of the judiciary, the legal profession and academia, as well as law students.  In addition to providing an invaluable opportunity to the students to hear more about the role of the Attorney-General from the office holder himself, it also allowed them to network and discuss with members of the legal profession, both from the public and private sector. 

UCLan Cyprus would like to thank the Attorney-General for delivering the first Inaugural Annual Lecture, as well as professionals who attended the event, and through their attendance also contributed to the creation of a hardship fund for students at the UCLan Cyprus School of Law in need of financial support.
