Professor Soro wanted to highlight the generosity of the professor honored with the youngest "that we began our research career, sharing ideas, opinions, news, rules on the issues that we then began to work. Always up to date, despite not using the Internet not even a computer. His daughters helped him to digitalize all his writings. It was impressive that, on a daily basis, and without these technological tools to use, every day he could share the last sentence that had come to his hands almost before the databases. "
The day has also had the participation of two professors of Administrative Law of the Complutense University of Madrid: José María Baño León, who has talked about the urban planning crisis and possible reform proposals;
