On May 17, 2017 the VII St Petersburg International Legal Forum will hold a formal ceremony announcing the St Petersburg International Legal Forum Private Law Prize. The Prize will be given annually for the outstanding academic work in the area of civil and international private law.
This global academic award should recognize the highest academic class of the winner, while the financial component of the Prize should help its winner realize research ideas of pan-human importance.
The Prize’s Expert Committee consists of internationally-renowned researchers who have predetermined the development of today’s legal science and whose works have been studied by the generations of modern lawyers.
The right to propose the candidates for the Prize will be given to the world’s best top-ranking universities.
We believe that the St Petersburg International Legal Forum Private Law Prize will become a global yardstick of academic excellence in private law, while the realization of the winners’ brilliant ideas will make the world a fairer and better place.
The amount of the Prize is 10 million roubles.
The award ceremony will be held during the St Petersburg International Legal Forum starting from 2018.
