CRDP hat trick for McGill Law students


Régine Tremblay, Anne Merminod and Joyce Tam, three McGill Law students, have won the first, second and third prize from the Essay Contest organized by the Centre de recherche en droit public (CRDP) of the Université de Montréal.

As part of an essay contest aiming to initiate undergraduate students to legal research, the Centre de recherche en droit public (CRDP) offers three prizes destined for students studying law at Université de Montréal, McGill and Université Laval.

This year, a trio of McGill students took the three prizes.


  • 1st prize: Régine Tremblay (left on photo), for her essay “Le droit myope”
  • 2nd prize: Anne Merminod, for her essay “The Deterrence Rationale in the Criminalization of HIV/AIDS”
  • 3rd prize: Joyce Tam (right on photo), for her essay “New media technologies, law, and society: an ecological approach”

The prizes were awarded on September 23, 2008, as part of the opening session of the CRDP presided by its director, Professor Karim Benyekhlef (center on photo). Furthermore, the essays will be published in the e-magazine, Lex Electronica.

The Faculty warmly congratulates Régine, Anne and Joyce for their triple win.
