F&F on campus for the Dissertation Dilemma
A number of lawyers from Fenech & Fenech Advocates were invited by GHSL – the Law Students Association to participate in an activity, titled “Dissertation Dilemma”, which took place at the University of Malta on the 25th October 2017. The aim of the event was to assist law students in choosing the subject of their term papers which are an essential part of their obtaining a law degree.
The Fenech & Fenech lawyers included Dr Sarah Rausi who introduced the students to the various fields covered by taxation; Dr Paul Gonzi went through points suitable for discussion in employment law; while Dr Jeanine Rizzo gave an overview of the different intellectual property rights – copyright, patents, designs, and trade marks – and also introduced the students to cultural and antiquity laws.
Other speakers also participated, namely Dr Ruth Farrugia, who spoke about family law and rights of the child; Dr Joseph Giglio, who spoke about recent developments in criminal law; and Dr Bridget Ellul, who spoke about bio ethics and the legal ramifications thereof. With such a broad overview of different subjects, law students are encouraged to diversify their research, and to tie together different areas of law by discussing issues which are common to them.
Another event is being organised in order to introduce students to further subjects.
