The Wiener-Anspach Foundation was delighted to attend the award ceremony organised by the ULB Faculty of Law and Criminology on April 28, 2022. On this occasion, the Foundations’s Executive Director, Kristin Bartik, presented Leana Derard with the 2020-2021 Ganshof van der Meersch Prize. Created in 1994 to honour the memory of Professor W. J. Ganshof van der Meersch, this prize rewards the merits of a student with an exemplary academic record and who earned their Master of Law degree at the ULB, specializing in public and international law.

In 2021, after obtaining her Master’s degree in Law summa cum laude, Leana joined the Brussels bar and the international law firm NautaDutilh. She is also a teaching assistant at the Université Saint-Louis, for the administrative law course.

Among the other students who were rewarded that night, we were pleased to see two former recipients of the Ganshof van der Meersch Prize, Louise Fromont and Cecilia Riczallah, who received the 2020-2021 Alice Seghers Prize.

Warm congratulations to all three of them!
