His legacy to the national legal and academic community is unsurpassed, both a source of inspiration and grateful memory.”

The statement added: “He left an indelible mark on all those who had the privilege of working with him or being a part of his life, which resulted in a heartfelt tribute to his remarkable qualities, not the least of which personal, with the publication of ‘Estudos em Homenagem a Mário Esteves de Oliveira’.”

Mário marked us all. And we shall never forget him.”
