The message reads, in part:
“The Sergei Alekseyev Private Law Research Centre under the President of the Russian Federation marked its 30th anniversary on December 27, 2021. Over these years, the centre has emerged as a highly respected member of the academic community thanks to the efforts of its members. This institution has gone to great lengths to codify and improve Russia’s civil law, including by drafting four parts of the Civil Code. It has also demonstrated great diligence and care when preparing expert opinion, drafting laws, and developing new legal concepts.
Importantly, today the centre’s team builds on the glorious traditions of Russian civil law studies and continues to play an important role in the legislative process, strengthening and developing our country’s legal framework. You also deserve credit for your efforts to bridge and harmonise civil law across the EAEU, engage in promising educational projects and remain proactive in contacts with your foreign partners.”
