Professors Tomasz Nieborak and Maciej Dybowski

The College of Law hosted Professors Tomasz Nieborak and Maciej Dybowski from the law school at Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) in Poznan, Poland. The professors spent a week on campus to deliver lectures to College of Law faculty and students, and meet with faculty to develop future educational and research opportunities for the two institutions.

“The College of Law and AMU faculties are dedicated to working together in the exchange of ideas through scholarly collaboration,” said Professor of Law Aviva Abramovsky, Associate Dean for International Initiatives. “It is critical to learn directly from experts around the world as the law is becoming more international. These dialogues enable faculty from both institutions to learn how the laws of both countries are changing and how research can be deployed to affect the law and policies.”

The visiting professors from AMU were:

Maciej Dybowski, a specialist in legal philosophy and European Union law, is currently an Associate Professor at the Chair of Theory and Philosophy of Law of Adam Mickiewicz University

Tomasz Nieborak, a specialist in finance and banking law, is currently a Professor in the Department of Financial Law, Faculty of Law and Administration of Adam Mickiewicz University

Professor Nieborak presented to the College of Law faculty, “Creation, Enforcement, and Economization of Financial Market Law in the Age of the Financialization of our Life” and Professor Dybowski presented to College of Law students, “Legal Reasoning as Practical Reasoning.”

“Our University and Syracuse University have signed an agreement and now we want to develop some content in several areas: exchange of the faculty, exchange of students, and academic cooperation,” said Professor Dybowski. “We want to provide Syracuse scholars and students with the unique central European experience and introduce the students to the culture and the legal system of the European Union of which Poland is a member.”
