The ELLINT Award is taking place this week!

The ELLINT Award is a prize instituted by our French member firm, MGG Voltaire, supported by our UK member firm Doyle Clayton. The prize rewards an article written in English on a particular theme of French employment law. It is open to students in Master 1 or Master 2 programmes registered at a French university or law school who have been taught social law. The competition is designed to reward the best articles in English on French employment law, to promote French employment law internationally, and to encourage French students of employment law to practice foreign languages. 

The theme chosen for 2021 is the protection of teleworkers.

Candidates wishing to participate must register and prepare one or more pedagogical articles written in English which explain and analyse French social law in a clear, structured and synthetic way with regard to the theme chosen.

The shortlisted candidates will present their article orally before a jury composed of at least three people, including a Chairman of the jury, appointed each year by the firm and a University Professor or a Senior Lecturer.

The amount of the prize is fixed at 5,000 euros. The winner(s) will also be offered the opportunity to undertake a paid internship at MGG Voltaire.
