Congratulations to Dr Melissa Loja, recipient of the Li Ka Shing Prize

Congratulations to Dr Melissa Loja who was awarded the Li Ka Shing Prize for her PhD thesis submitted in the academic year 2017-2018. In 1990, Dr. Li Ka Shing made a generous donation to the University. Part of the investment income earned on the donation has been used to establish the Li Ka Shing Prizes, which are awarded annually to up to six MPhil / PhD theses on the basis of academic excellence. The Prizes are in the form of a gold-plated medal plus a cash prize. Dr Loja's thesis was titled 'International Agreements between Non-state Actors as a Source of International Law: A study of international unitization agreements between petroleum agencies and corporations' and was completed under the supervision of Professor Simon Young.  She is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Centre for International Law at the National University of Singapore.
