Poster Contest for Law Students to mark Crépeau Centre's 40th anniversary!

News

To encourage innovation and stimulate interest in research among law students at faculties of Quebec civil law, the Paul-André Crépeau Center for Private and Comparative Law is launching a student poster contest.

The contest is linked to the conference that will mark, on 12 February 2016, the Crépeau Centre’s 40th anniversary, during which poster submissions will be displayed and the  winners announced.

Well-known in other disciplines, the research poster is a way of communicating research results clearly and accessibly. See this resource developed by the Université du Québec network, for details on the nature and constraints of the exercise: http://ptc.uquebec.ca/affiche/

Key information:

  • Open to all students registered at a faculty of Quebec civil law (including Ottawa Civil)
  • Undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral students are eligible
  • Any research subject is eligible (private law, public law, comparative law, etc.); we imagine that students will draw on research already undertaken for a paper or thesis

  • Posters will be judged by a jury from the Crépeau Centre
  • First prize: $1000; second prize: $500
