2012 European LL.M. Reunion

LLM ReunionThe UVA LL.M. Reunion European Chapter met in Vienna, Austria July 5-8, and a good time was had by all. 

A guided tour of the Palace of Justice by two Supreme Court Justices and a presentation on the Austrian Judiciary system was followed by academic sessions on data protection and privacy and central Europe from 1918-2018. A visit to the Augarten Porcelain Museum was followed by wine tasting, a cellar tour, and a Heurigen buffet dinner.

A guided tour of the Museum Leopold was followed by coffee and streudel at one of Vienna’s finest restaurants, and an extraordinary formal dinner at the Hotel Sacher. The next day, a High Mass and Gregorian chant at St. Augustine Church was followed by an outstanding lunch at Restaurant Albertina.

LLM ReunionAt the business meeting which followed, it was decided the next reunion will be held in Ghent in two years and it is hoped many of our European alumni will plan to attend.
