In October 2018 we launched the Justis International Writing Competition for a second year. With entries sent in by students from all around the world, we were overwhelmed with the quality and effort from each entrant.
During December the Justis Team created a shortlist, narrowing the competition down to 18 articles. These articles were then anonymised and sent to our judging panel.
The 2019 Judging Panel:
We would like to thank all of our judges and partners including Richmond Journal of Law & Technology, The City Law School, and Jisc for supporting our competition. We would also like to thank and praise all students who entered the competition this year. The high quality of the entries made the shortlisting, judging and adjudication a challenging process.
