Vladimir is looking forward to starting his new assignment as head of department:

- I am of course very grateful for the trust I have gained through the assignment. My main tasks will be to work for a good working environment and to facilitate and support the high-quality teaching and research conducted at the department.

Bengt can look back on three intense but fun years as Head of the Department of Law:

- My years as head of department, 2019 - 2022, have been dominated by the rapid changes that we have had to make several times as a result of the pandemic. We have maintained as much of our normal operations as possible. And thanks to a great commitment from all employees, it has worked. The role of head of department itself, with intensive contacts with large parts of the department and also other parts of the university, has been at the same time instructive, stimulating and challenging. It's an experience that I'm really grateful to have had, as I return full-time to research and teaching.
