Rubén Perea Award for young competition lawyers

Chillin’Competition has created the annual ‘Rubén Perea Award’ for the best paper (master thesis, research paper or article) in competition/state aid law written by lawyers, economists or students under 30 years old. 

This is an initiative to keep the memory of Rubén Perea, a young EU lawyer specialised in the area of competition law who had just completed his LL.M at the College of Europe when he tragically passed away on 1 April 2020 at the age of 25, after the COVID-19 outbreak delayed the surgery he needed to fight the illness he suffered.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as scholars and practitioners are all invited to participate in the award. Eligible participants must be under the age of 30 by the submission date (15 September 2020).

Papers must not exceed 15,000 words (footnotes included). They should be single-authored, unpublished, and not have been considered elsewhere. Submissions should include a brief abstract in the form of three or four bullet points.

Submissions must be made via this link: They should include a cover letter indicating that the paper is submitted for the Rubén Perea Award.

The winning paper will be published in the Journal of European Competition Law and Practice. The winner will be announced on Chillin’Competition, and will have the opportunity to present the work in a guest post. If the circumstances allow it, an award will be presented at the next Chillin’Competition conference.
