The Institute for Legal Studies’ system of awards has been renewed

The Iuris Consulto Excellentissimo Award has been replaced by HAS Centre for Social Sciences Institute for Legal Studies Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognises the achievement and life’s work of outstanding Hungarian legal scholars. The Institute has launched the Felix Somló Lecture in recognition of exceptional legal scholars whose research has substantially contributed to the development of international legal scholarship or whose work considerably influenced the Hungarian legal system. The Pro Dissertatione Iuridica Excellentissima Award, established in 2014, will go on being awarded every second year. This award celebrates the work of young scholars by recognising the most excellent PhD dissertations written in the field of legal studies.
