Akilys award.

The Akilys award was created jointly with the law faculty of University of Lyon III Jean Moulin, with the aim of creating a cross-discipline event putting students to task with resolving a case in a professional situation.

Why an Akilys award?

  • The aim is to promote multi-disciplinary skills in business law, as we practise it within our firm.
  • The practical case work combines verbal and written presentations, with a panel of examiners to assess the capacity of students to resolve and jointly present a practical case study on taxation, merger & acquisition, and property law, as would junior lawyers.
The award is intended for post-graduate students on Master II programmes, aiming to work in M&A, taxation, estate planning and insolvency:

  • DJCE (corporate legal counsel)
  • Law and Financial engineering (DIF)
  • Banking and Financial law (DIF)
  • Tax law
  • Advanced Business law
  • Contract law
  • Administration & liquidation of businesses in difficulty (ALED)

Assessment methods.

  • Candidates are divided into groups of five from different Master degree programmes and have 15 days to return their analyses after being assigned the business case.
  • The three finalist teams will present their work to a panel of university experts, lawyers, and business leaders.
  • Finalists will receive a medal and an award.
  • Each member of the winning team will receive an award and an internship at Akilys
