ESCL Prizes

The new ESCL Essay Prize

After a decade of operating the Masters Thesis Prize, the ESCL General Assembly commissioned a review of the competition by the Society’s Board with two main objectives:

·         to extend eligibility beyond students, to include young professionals, practitioners and academics;
·         to encourage entries from more member states.

A Thesis Prize Review Committee was appointed and the new ESCL Essay Prize proposal is the result of its work.

As of 2022 an ESCL Essay Prize is introduced. More information will follow soon.

ESCL Master Thesis Prizes

In 2012, ESCL launched an annual competition for theses on construction law submitted as part of a University Master’s degree.  In the nine years since its inception, awards were made to students of many nationalities from universities in five different countries and the ESCL Masters Thesis Prize became recognised as a prestigious international competition.
