A word of inspiration: EVS volunteers addressed to future lawyers


Democratic standards are needed in all spheres of life. But they become critically important for those who are going to defend people’s rights and freedoms – for future lawyers. With this message the EVS volunteers of Center from European Initiatives addressed the law students of University of Internal Affairs Sumy Branch. The inter-regional student conference took place in Sumy on April 12.

The EVS volunteers - Victor Conejos from Spain and Jara Snippe from the Netherlands – talked about democratic values in their countries and importance of following these standards not only on paper but in practice. The speech received warm feedback both from students and professors of the University and the volunteers were invited to future cooperation with the educational establishment in the field of scientific work regarding European integration, standards and active citizenship.
