Lawyers‘ Ball 2018
The Lawyers‘ Ball of the Czech Lawyer Association Všehrd is traditionally the pinnacle event of the year for the lawyer community as well as the public. This event has always been a remarkable place, at which the foremost persons of the Czech advocacy, the judicial system, legal bar associations, academic community and public life have met. The Lawyers’ Ball began its tradition already on the 14th March 1870 and since then observes the fate of the Association and the Czech national history. Although the tradition of the Lawyers’ Ball has been interrupted on several occasions, it never ceased to exist, which makes it entirely unique and rare among such events.
The Lawyers‘ Ball has in the previous years become the largest ball held in Prague. Within the previous years, the sold-out Municipal house has hosted a wide range of known artists, among whom it is possible to name for example Jan Ledecký, Ladislav Kerndl, the Superstar winner Emma Drobná, Jan Smigmator, Michaela Nosková, the Big Band of Felix Slováček, the West-bohemian symphonic orchestra Marienbad, Iva Frühling, Martina Maxová or the band Mydy Rabycad. Many senior persons have met at the Lawyers’ Ball, where unforgettable memories have been made.
This year’s installment of the ball will traditionally be held in collaboration with the Law Faculty of the Charles University. This ties in with the beneficial element of this event. The profits from each previous ball we have donated to the Law Faculty for the repair of the legendary elevator, the paternoster. The profits from the next ball will be donated for further development of the interior of the building of the Law Faculty of the Charles University, which should be determined by architectural competition.
importance of the event is also emphasised by the conferment of patronage by
the chairman of the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic, Pavel Rychetský
and the town councillor for education of the capital city Prague, Irena
Thanks to the support of our partners, sponsors, the hard work of the members of the Association and the support of the Law Faculty, we are able to keep the Lawyers’ Ball among the most significant cultural events in Prague and we are very glad that we are also able to carry this legacy in the next year.
As part of the Lawyers‘ Ball you will be met with a rich cultural programme. Live music for dance and listening will await you in each of the spectacular halls of the Municipal House.
Smetana Hall: The Programme will be initiated by the West-bohemian orchestra from Marienbad, which is the oldest body of such type on our territory. Halfway through the ceremonious evening we will host the legendary singer Lenka Filipová. The second part of the evening in the Smetana Hall will belong to the Orchestra of Karel Vlach. Singers such as Jan Smigmátor or Anna Julie Slováčková will sing together, reminiscing, among others, the music of the famous Sinatrology.
Sladkovský‘s hall: The band Lake Malawi and the swing vocal group Hot Sisters will perform in the Sladkovský hall. After midnight the floor will traditionally belong to the DJs.
Grégr’s Hall: The area of the Grégr Hall will be initiated by the female duo TBeeGirls with a band, after which Markéta Poulíčková will continue with a musical accompaniment. An hour before midnight until the end of the evening the floor will traditionally belong to the Cymbalo music Denár from Znojmo.
