2022 ELI Annual Conference: Young Lawyers Award


Congratulations to Tea Mustać for winning the 2022 ELI Young Lawyers Award for her paper on ‘The Lost Philosophy of Copyright’.

In the paper, Mustać argues that although the environment in which artistic works circulate has shifted into the online world, an associated shift in our philosophy has not taken place. The full paper is available here.

Tea holds a Master’s degree from the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Law (Croatia). She spent the final year of her law studies at the Karls-Franzens-Universität (Graz, Austria) as part of an Erasmus+ exchange program.

She was announced as the winner of the award at an evening reception organised within the framework of 2022 ELI’s Annual Conference on 6 September 2022. Sjef van Erp, Chair of the ELI Young Lawyers Award Jury, and John North, member of the Jury and representative of International Association of Independent Law Firms, ‘Interleges’, the sponsor of the Award, handed her the prize.

The ELI Young Lawyers Award was officially launched at the 2016 Annual Conference and General Assembly. The goal of this award is to provide the young European legal community with a mechanism to propose practical suggestions for the improvement of European law. The award is supported by ELI and other participating institutions.
