Dr. Paul du Plessis, legal academic from the Edinburgh Law School, who is a founding member of the International Advisory Board of the Alan Watson Foundation, was special guest of the University of Belgrade School of Law. He is devoted to the study of Roman law, the relationship between law and history as well as between law and society in a historical context.
As part of his activities in Belgrade, Dr. Paul du Plessis presented a public lecture entitled “Theory and Practice in the Roman Law of Contracts” on Friday, March 28, which was followed by an academic debate.
One of the major goals of his visit to Belgrade was also the expansion of the Foundation and its activities. As agreed with Professor Sima Avramovic, Dr. Paul du Plessis will be the editor of a new Roman law section within the AWF website. He will also become a member of the Editorial Board of the Annals of the Faculty of Law in Belgrade – Journal of Legal and Social Sciences.
