“If the king did not tirelessly punish those whom he should punish, the stronger would roast the weaker as a fish. … Nobody would own anything and the world would be upside down.“
This definition of justice from the first millennium before Christ comes from the oldest legal code which was published in India and became known as the Laws of Manu. Each country’s legal system judges the relation of crime and punishment in its own way and it is the duty of every lawyer to strive for its just and unbiased perception.
After completion of their difficult studies fresh law school graduates stand at the beginning of their most difficult exam – the test of life. The field they chose as their profession will bring them exacting moments as well as minutes of joy. They are however firm in their decision to do their best to defend justice. Let them know you appreciate their achievement and support their will with a valuable gift – commemorative silver medal JUDr (LLM) from Czech Mint. It will forever remind them of the dignity of their profession in the field of law.
The author of the design for the silver medal is talented creative artist Irena Hradecká. The reverse of the medal features the portrait of the Teacher of Nations – Jan Amos Komenský reminding of the importance of education. On the obverse side we can see the depiction of Dike, the Greek goddess of justice in her typical pose with eyes covered by a scarf and holding the scales in her hand.
Dike was the daughter of Zeus and goddess Themis. Whenever Zeus gave judgments, Dike and Themis, who was responsible for law and order, stood by his side. Their presence at Zeus’ side as protectors of justice symbolized a significant fact – that justice and law and order are not identical terms. The Romans linked both these meanings in one goddess of justice and law whose name is Justitia.
Remind fresh owners of the academic title JUDr how much you care about their future success and contentment – both in their professional and personal life. Give them a precious silver commemorative medal from Czech Mint.
