The Union Internationale des Avocats (UIA – International Association of Lawyers) is launching the 3rd Jacques Leroy International Prize – Business and Human Rights for law student of less than 30 years old.
Students who wish to compete for this prize must send a dissertation (plea, study, commentary of a practical case) that deals with the theme “The Jurist and the Development of Human Rights in the Busines World”, to the UIA before June 30, 2012.
The winner will be rewarded with participation in the UIA annual congress that will take place in Dresden (Germany) from October 31 to November 4, 2012, including travel costs, accommodation and a cash prize of € 1000, as well as free membership in the UIA for a year.
Since it believes that law students can also help in promoting human rights in business, the UIA encourages them to participate.
