VIII Legal Assembly of the UBA Students' League: New Management Elected


ZATOKA - April 28-30, 2018. The Students' League of the Ukrainian Bar Association held its regular VIII Legal Assembly to elect new leadership and set plans for the future.

More than 50 law students, representatives of the UBA Students' League from all over Ukraine gathered on the seacoast to determine the organization's goals for the coming year. The Legal Assembly was held in three stages.

On the first day, members of the Board of the League and representatives of the local branches heard the report of each member of the Board about their activities during the year. This board was truly the "Board of Superheroes", because leaders of each branch for a relatively short time were able to bring their sphere of competence and organization in general to a qualitatively new level. Students took the opportunity to ask questions of their interest regarding the activities of the branches, and then approved the reports of members of the Board.

The second day was devoted to the election of the new Board of the UBA Students' League. Candidates demonstrated their resolve to improve and further develop the organization and presented their election programs. The Assembly participants analyzed in detail the program of each candidate by asking clarifying questions in order to make the right choice in the end.

The evening of the second day was the most remarkable, featuring the solemn ceremony of awarding the "Students' League UBA AWARDS 2018" and the announcement of the long-awaited results of voting. Local branches of the Students' League competed in the following categories: innovation of the year, breakthrough of the year, the best All-Ukrainian school of the year, the project of the year, and also the contest of the year.

Following the results of the voting and assessment of the performance indicators, the winner in the "Innovation of the Year" nomination became the Odessa branch of the UBA Students' League with their innovative chatbot -  UBABot. The "Breakthrough of the Year" became the Poltava branch of the UBA Students' League for its commitment to the organization and the rapid development of the branch  throughout the year. The best All-Ukrainian school became the VIII All-Ukrainian School of Criminal Law and Process (which has gathered more than 300 participants from all over Ukraine!), organized by the Kharkiv branch of the UBA Students' League.

The "Project of the Year" became the largest career fair in the history of Students' League - LegalHRFair! About 600 ambitious and talented students had the opportunity to meet with future employers and make one step closer to their dreams. Finally, the winner in the category "Competitions of the Year" became the unique competition organized by Lviv branch - the UBA Students’ League Moot Competitionon IP 2.0!
