She gave students examples of stories...
Dean of the Faculty of Law Prof. Dr. Elif Sonsuzoğlu in her speech advised the students with three anecdotes titled “There are Judges in Berlin”, “Gown” and "Themis Statue ”.
Prof. Dr. Sonsuzoğlu said: “The miller looks at the king and says; Remember, there are judges in Berlin! No power, no politics, no power is superior to justice even if the king himself! Nobody goes above justice. He can't sit there. Sansosi Palace and the mill are still next to each other in Potsdam even today. As for the robes worn by judges and lawyers; they are not buttoned so that they will not be bought by anybody, they will not be pulled down by anybody, they are not pocketed so that they cannot be defeated and bribed. Themis, the goddess of justice, representing justice, judges and decides solely on the basis of universal law principles, laws and conscience, blindfolded, impartially, without seeing who she is judging. She does not know whether he has imprisoned his closest friend or acquitted his enemy. ’ After her speech, Sonsuzoğlu made the graduation students swear on their profession.
