The Procurement Lawyers’ Association is proud to announce its 9th Annual Essay Competition.
This annual competition has been established in memory of Rosie Choueka, a committed and hard-working member of the PLA’s Executive Committee who sadly passed away in 2015 following a valiant fight against breast cancer.
Rosie had a passion for public procurement law which the PLA aims to honour by encouraging young lawyers (students, solicitors and barristers (or national equivalents) up to three (3) years post qualification status) to submit an essay of not less than 2000 words and not more than 3000 words on different public procurement subjects. This year the chosen topic is:
“Does the Procurement Act 2023 get it right in relation to debarment?”
The essay should be submitted to the PLA by no later than 5pm on Friday 7th June 2024 via email to Rebecca Rees at Trowers & Hamlins LLP (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are pleased to announce that the following prizes will be available for the winning essays:
- £2000 – first prize
- £1000 – second prize
- £500 – third prize
The winner will be invited to present their paper at the Autumn 2024 meeting of the Procurement Lawyers’ Association.
