Every year, the Institute awards the diploma of excellence to the few human rights lawyers worldwide who have successfully completed a three-round competitive examination in front of various examination committees consisting of human rights judges, UN experts and international law professors. The first round consisted of writing an essay to be completed in five hours, the second round consisted of a one-hour presentation of a human rights legal case to be prepared in 24 hours, and the third consisted of discussing a specific, randomly selected international public law topic. This year, four candidates obtained the diploma: in addition to winners from Burkina Faso, Malaysia, and Mexico, Enikő was the only European and the sixth Hungarian in the diploma's 52-year history to receive it in the building of the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The diploma was obtained for the first time in Hungary by Prof. Dr. Péter Kovács, former university professor and former head of the International Law Department of the University of Miskolc, currently a judge of the International Criminal Court, in 1984, whose former supervisor was Dr. Anikó Raisz, associate professor, Enikő's PhD supersivor, in 2006, was also among the awardees of the diploma. We congratulate both the young researcher and his supervisor on their great success.
