JPK Trust hands over excellence awards

29 November 2019 | Education

The 20th anniversary of the Judge JP Karuaihe Trust and the 13th annual JPK Trust Legal Excellence Awards took place in the capital recently. For the seventh time, the JPK Trust Legal Excellence Awards ceremony took place on the same day prior to the Law Society of Namibia (LSN) AGM.
Since the awards are centred around legal practitioners and law students, the LSN created an opportunity for its members to be present when future legal practitioners and their peers are awarded for their achievements.
The LSN’s involvement with the Judge JPK Trust started in 2006 when the trustees approached the society to assist them in identifying and selecting deserving winners for ‘legal excellence awards’, acknowledging the dedication, efforts and commitment of legal practitioners who enhance and protect the Rule of Law in Namibia, and honour their social responsibilities.
At the event, Ngamane Karuaihe-Upi of the trust handed over the awards, and presented the LSN with an award for its contributions towards the JPK Trust, which Meyer van den Berg accepted on behalf of the LSN. He thanked the JPK Trust for taking hands with the LSN to honour these achievements as well as congratulating the JPK Trust with its 20th Anniversary.

Awards
• Best JTC student for 2018: Leon Lochner, who achieved an average of 71.90% in all 11 subjects.
• Best LLB final year student for 2018: Rebekka Haimbili, who achieved an average of 69.8% in the LLB programme.
• Legal Excellence Award for Social Responsibility: Lorentz Angula Inc (ENS Africa). Andreas Potgieter and Kennedy Haraseb accepted the award on behalf of the firm.
• Legal Excellence Award for Human Rights: Dieter Maree of Maree & Associates.
