JPK Trust hands over excellence awards
29 November 2019 | Education
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.
