Faculty of Law

The conference will be hosted by the Faculty of Law, Masaryk University in Brno, Veveří 70 (consult the map).

The Faculty of Law being one of the four initial faculties of Masaryk University, founded 1919, has a rich and fruitful history and belongs to the most progressive faculties of law in the Czech Republic. It is situated in a distinctive brick-red building very close to the centre of the city of Brno, with easy accessibility via public transport (the closest tram stop is Rybkova or Nerudova).

Registration will be held outside room 109 (1st floor). Signs will direct you to this room from the main entrance. Most of the program will take place in room 109 and coffee breaks in room 110. The keynote speech will be given in room 034.

The conference dinner (for registered only) will be held in restaurant „U Tomana (address: nám. Svobody 22, consult the map).


As far as accommodation is concerned, one of the options available is the Hotel Continental. For the conference participants, accommodation in this hotel is offered at a better price than the commercial price (for a standard single room it should be about 1.600 CZK / 70 EUR per night), and the hotel is located relatively close to the faculty. However, it is necessary to contact the hotel directly, e.g., via e-mail ( or telephone (+420 541 519 609) and inform them that you are attending a conference at Masaryk University Faculty of Law, which should secure a better price.

In addition, Brno of course offers a much wider range of accommodation options. Individual accommodation can be found for example through the Booking platform. If you need any help in arranging or communicating with the accommodation provider, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing committee.

Arriving to Brno (by Plane)

Brno has its own airport, but unfortunately not so many planes fly here. However, there are several easily accessible airports near Brno – In particular, we can recommend flying to Vienna Airport. There are frequent direct flights from here and you can get to the centre of Brno in about 2 hours. Alternatively, there is also the option of flying into Prague or Bratislava airport, but the connection to Brno from these airports is not very convenient.

  • A conference dinner will be held on Friday evening (for registered participants only). Details of location and time will be sent to all those registered in due course.
  • Brno is also a hub of cafés. If you are a coffee lover, you should try to get to at least two or three cafes with a speciality coffee. Several of them are also quite close to the Faculty of Law. To mention a few, literally next to the faculty building there is the Piknik box (as the name suggests, it is especially suitable if the weather is nice) or a little further on there is Komár kafe or Kafec. In the city centre, we can recommend SKØG (where they also have a lot of vegan options), Dezertína (famous for its croissants) or 4pokoje (a great place for either brunch or an evening drink). For more tips on good cafés, check out this app.
  • Brno is not just about hipster cafés, however, it also offers many other gastronomic experiences. Whether you want to have a burger (Bucheck), a combination of Czech and Vietnamese cuisine (Večerka), sushi or dumplings (MANYA), or an affordable fine dining experience (Atelier or Element), you will find something for yourself in Brno. And if you would like to taste traditional Czech cuisine, there is, for example, Lokál. For a drink we can recommend the Bar, který neexistuje (literally translated as Bar that doesn't exist), with its unique atmosphere. It is a good idea to make a reservation for some places in advance, but in general it is not necessary during non-busy times and in most places in Brno.
