This year, a record number of candidates were entered into the competition, out of whom the jury selected 10 exceptional winners and 5 lawyers, who were awarded special prizes.
‘In this year’s edition of the competition we received a great number of interesting applications,’ says Danuta Przywara, the Chairwoman of the Council of the Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights, who chaired this year’s Rising Stars Competition Chapter. – We paid attention to the deepening of knowledge and professional achievements, but we placed equal importance to pro bono activity and activity for the common good. Fortunately, there are very many lawyers who are able to combine these two worlds brilliantly,” she adds.
