The 19th Anniversary of the Judge JP Karuaihe Trust and the 12th Annual JPK Trust Legal Excellence Awards took place on Friday, 23 November 2018 at the Safari Court Hotel and Conference Centre.
For the sixth time, the JPK Trust Legal Excellence Awards ceremony took place on the same day and prior to the LSN AGM.
Since the awards are centered around legal practitioners and law students the LSN created an opportunity for its members to be present when future legal practitioners and their peers are awarded for their achievements.
The Law Society’s involvement with the Judge JPK Trust started during 2006 when the trustees of the JPK Trust approached the LSN to assist them in identifying and selecting deserving winners for the ‘legal excellence awards’ thereby acknowledging the dedication, efforts and commitment of legal practitioners who are enhancing and protecting the Rule of Law in Namibia and honouring their social responsibilities.
