Кристиан Таков

Great minds and noble hearts never perish and never leave this land, for everyone who encounters them remembers, carries and conveys them.

We will always remember our teacher and mentor Prof. Takov, who tirelessly taught us civil law, comparative commercial law, banking law and legal logic, and especially that which is beyond the law, and for which it is worth working tirelessly and living — the power of morality and ethics and the freedom to seek and fight for justice.

From 1994 to 1995, he acquired LLM at the University of Hamburg, and three years later defended a PhD at Sofia University where he taught as an associate professor since 1992.
