The Mauro Cappelletti Prize for the Best Thesis in Comparative Law
Mauro Cappelletti, whose name is honoured by this prize, was a great scholar of Comparative Law and Professor of Law at the EUI, at the University of Florence and at Stanford University in California. In 1995 Robert Helm, an alumnus of the EUI and a former student of the late Professor Cappelletti, together with his wife Mimie, generously decided to finance the annual award of a prize for the best doctoral thesis at the EUI in the field of comparative law.
The prize is awarded annually and was conferred for the first time in 2005.
