Law professor honored at Oxford University banquet in England

October 26, 2012

Professor Keith Vetter, LL.M., the Ted and Louana Frois Distinguished Professor of Law for International Studies at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, was an honoree at a banquet held last month at All Souls College at the University of Oxford in England. The banquet, hosted by Boudewijn Sirks, Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford, was given on behalf of former members of the Comité Directeur of the Société Internationale Pour l' Histoire des Droits d'Antiquité.

Vetter served as a member of the three-person Comité with Peter Pieler, dean of the University of Vienna Law School, and the late Peter Birks, QC, then Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford.

Vetter also delivered a eulogy for professor Obrad Stanojevic, Ph.D., at the 66th Congress of the Société Internationale Pour l' Histoire des Droits d'Antiquité, held in mid-September at St. Catherine’s College in Oxford. Stanojevic, former Fulbright Scholar and visiting professor in the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, also taught Loyola summer sessions in Mexico and Russia. He was a renowned Roman law scholar, former dean of the University of Belgrade Law School, and was a friend to many on the Loyola College of Law faculty.
