Jacqueline Suter Prize
The Jacqueline Suter prize for an excellent thesis on a topic of EU law, is most generously sponsored on a personal basis by the friends and colleagues at the European Court of Justice of the late Dr. Jacqueline Suter, who died in 2009. Jackie worked for many years as a Head of Division at the European Court of Justice and it is the wish of those who knew her in Luxembourg that her name should be commemorated here at the EUI, to which she always remained very fondly attached. Jackie was one of the first British researchers to take her Ph.D. here in the Law Department on 25 March 1985 under the supervision of Prof. Klaus Hopt on the topic "The Regulation of Insider Dealing in Britain and France".
The prize was first awarded in 2009 and again in June 2012.
