The FedEE International Employment Law Challenge: 2016/17

The Federation of International Employers (FedEE) joined forces with the Law Faculty of the European University, Nicosia to run a competition for final year law students from the University.

Students were asked to undertake analyses of the FedEE knowledgebase. Each competing student selected a country and was asked to find fault with it in terms of necessary updates, additional useful content and errors. The content proved to be robust, but the competitors did find missing content and suggested improvements.

The winner of the challenge received a bursary to cover a module of their course, plus a trophy. Runners-up each received a medal and 200 euros. The prizes were presented by Vasiliki Filippou, our in-house Barrister and FedEE’s Head of Legal Research.
