Olomouc, Czech Republic
Olomouc is a major city in Moravia and the capital of the administrative region of the same name. It is the sixth largest city in the country and the most important city in the Haná region of Moravia (also known in English as Hanakia or Hanácko in Czech). Until the mid-17th century, Olomouc could be considered one of Moravia’s capital cities (together with Brno).
Its well preserved Old Town belongs to the most beautiful ones in Czechia and boasts a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It attracts many domestic and foreign tourists, but the city still seems somewhat underrated. If you like visiting charming historic cities and don’t like the kind of crowds that you’ll see e.g. in Prague, then Olomouc may be a perfect destination for you.
Palacký University, Faculty of Law
Since its re-establishment in 1991, the Faculty of Law at the second oldest university in the Czech Republic – Palacký University Olomouc, espouses and imparts to its students the core values of integrity, humanity, democracy and civic duty. Dedication to these values, extraordinary credentials of the faculty and the excellence in teaching and research have been recognised in a variety of fields of law on several occasions, such as with the award of the prestigious Hannah Arendt prize, the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence or the Fulbright Scholarships.
The Faculty of Law commits to excellent legal education and preparation of its students for lives of service and leadership in a world that is demanding and changing. All faculty members live out this commitment not only by placing a high priority upon student-faculty interaction, but also by offering to students an extensive real-world experience through a system of an experiential and clinical program, the excellency of which is internationally recognized.
