Seventeenth VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne Thesis Prize presented on Curaçao

WILLEMSTAD - Almira Keli won the seventeenth VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne Thesis Prize. The prize – a check and a 
certificate – was presented to her by attorneys at law Tiffany de Palm and Aubrich Bakhuis.
 
With this annual prize, VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne awards the author of the best master thesis at the Faculty of Law of the University of Curaçao (UoC). 
 
This year, the UoC nominated three candidates. The theses of all nominees were graded with an 8 and it was up to the jury to select a winner. During the writing process, the supervising professors already pay close attention to the added scientific value of the theses. Therefore, the jury mainly focused on the quality and structure of the legal substantiation of the question.
 
The winning thesis of Almira Keli addresses the Curaçao extradition law. According to attorneys Tiffany de Palm and Aubrich Bakhuis, her thesis provides a very clear overview of the current state of this field of law: “Almira succeeded to structure her thesis in a way that makes it very easy-to- follow. Her argumentation was to the point, and by using schematic overviews she managed to explain complex matters clearly. Therefore, Almira’s thesis can serve as a guideline for lawyers that aren’t fully familiar with criminal law, and in particular extradition law.”
 
As an organization where know-how is essential, VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne actively supports good education. Education creates opportunities for the future generations in the Caribbean society in which the firm operates. The annual presentation of the Theses Prize is an initiative to support this. Other initiatives include providing support at moot courts and provide (guest) lectures.
