Student Competition 2019

For 2019, the focus within “Community” was “Sustainability“. The challenge in the competition was to use the law to build a sustainable community. Communities are dynamic: existing ones evolve and new ones take form. A community strengthens and grows not merely because its members can co-exist, but because they work together to build a community that is sustainable.

The students were encouraged to contemplate in their own way what constitutes a sustainable community. The students’ projects had to demonstrate how the law can be used as a tool to build a sustainable community and ensure that the project itself would be sustainable over time.
