The 11th Russian workshop conference Derzhavin Recital will open in Kazan. The event will gather some 450 participants, a news conference at Tatar-inform was told earlier in the day.

Russian State Justice University rector OIga Alexandrova, deputy rector for economy, finance and strategic development Dmitry Guriev, Tatarstan first deputy education minister Andrei Pominov and Kazan Federal University’s first deputy rector Riyaz Minzaripov told journalists about the conference.

The Derzhavin Recital is scheduled for 25-26 November at Kazan Federal University. It will open with a plenary meeting on Wednesday and continue with sessions held by 12 units as round table discussions.

According to the RSJU rector, the university had held the conference since 2005. “This year, the Russian State Justice University marks its 45th anniversary, which is why the decision was made to hold the recital at the home of statesman and first justice minister Gavril Derzhavin. Our university has 15 branches in Russia, one of them in Kazan. This is why we chose Kazan,” she explained.

“Tatarstan is the home of Derzhavin. The fact that the republic is home to a lot of higher schools offering training in law specialities is important. As of the moment, some 11 thousand students are trained in law, and it is very important they get quality education,” Andrei Pominov commented.

Participants in the conference would not only be lawyers but philologists as well, said Riyaz Minzaripov, as Gavril Derzhavin was a famous Russian poet, philosopher and humanist. A total of 178 professors and government officials would deliver reports, while 154 students and KFU staff members would make reports on their research, he said. In conclusion, the conference will issue a resolution.

“I hope holding the Derzhavin Recital at Derzhavin’s home will become a tradition,” Olga Alexandrova said.
