Three Faculty of Law students at the University of Tartu have been awarded Bar Association scholarship
It was the fourth time for Estonian Bar Association to organize a competition of student works as a result of which three Faculty of Law students at the University of Tartu were awarded Bar Association scholarship.
According to Bar Association, the scholarship was given to Marje Allikmets for her work “The Rights of a Person to Be Divested During the Divestiture Procedure - Analysis of the Judicial Practice”, Martin-Johannes Raude for his work “In-camera Court Session for Protection of a Trade Secret” and Kevin Siivelt for his work “Private Charges - a Necessary Supplement for Estonian Criminal Procedural Law?” In addition to the above-mentioned scholars, the work of Artur Knajazev “Ban on Being Guided by the Convictions of the Attorney” was also highlighted.
“This year’s scholarship competition provided several notable works too, which assures the viability of the competition. The student authors have chosen very topical and intriguing topics from the point of view of law practice, which were also awarded as a result of the competition,” said Sten Luiga, Chairman of Bar Association.
The submitted student works were assessed by a committee, which consisted of attorneys-at-law Aleksander Glikman, Piret Jesse, Priit Manavald, Margus Mugu and Maivi Ots.
Total of ten works were submitted to the competition, which was announced in October last year. The scholarship competition of Bar Association motivates students to take a deeper look into research work, which involves the activity of Bar Association and attorneys.
