Best Thesis Award for Dr Vincent Richard’s PhD thesis

19 February 2021

The MPI Luxembourg is very proud of Vincent Richard, Senior Research Fellow in the Department of European and Comparative Procedural Law, for receiving the Best Thesis Award 2020 from the Council of the Doctoral School in Law at the University of Luxembourg.

Vincent successfully defended his thesis (summa cum laude) on “Le jugement par défaut dans l’espace judiciaire européen” (Default Judgments in the European Judicial Area) in October 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Gilles Cuniberti (University of Luxembourg) and Prof. Loic Cadiet (University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne). The thesis is available in open access here.

The academic ambition of the thesis, its doctrinal and practical contribution, in a work that covered aspects of comparative law, international private law and European law, combined with its excellent quality certified by the members of his thesis committee, motivated the Council’s decision.

The Best Thesis Award will be attributed by the University of Luxembourg during the graduation ceremony that will take place in May 2021.
