Liber Amicorum Olga Tellegen-Couperus

Edited by: C.L. van Blom, E.J.M.F.C. Broers

On December 12 and 13, 2013, the Department of Public Law, Jurisprudence and Legal History at Tilburg Law School convened an international conference on legal history in honour of Dr. Olga Tellegen-Couperus, who in August of that year had formally retired from Tilburg University after 36 years. Colleagues and friends came from the Netherlands and Europe to celebrate their years of professional exchange and comradeship with Olga. During two enthralling days, those who had known Olga for years and had developed long standing friendships with her mingled with other participants, including Olga's PhD students. The different topics discussed mirrored Olga's broad interests in proper legal history, Roman law, rhetoric and Common Law. All possible intertwining relations between those legal disciplines were brought forward in sound scholarly presentations, discourses and humorous talks. All participants took pleasure in sharing their academic research, engaging in debate and enjoying each other's company. At the close of the conference, the plan was devised to capture the atmosphere of the gathering in a booklet. The result is this liber amicorum for the beloved and highly respected Olga Tellegen-Couperus. The title of this festschrift is a true reflection of the thorough and enthusiastic way in which Olga committed herself to her academic career. [Subject: Legal History, Law]
