I am very pleased to congratulate Professor Jean du Plessis (School of Law) on receiving the Anneliese Maier Research Award from the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
The award of EUR250,000 was awarded for a period of 5 years (EUR50,000 per year; 2013-2017), based on Jean's potential to assist Germany with the further internationalisation of their corporate governance model.
Jean was nominated for this award by Professor Ingo Saenger, Director of the Institute for International Business Law at the University of Muenster. It is particularly pleasing that Jean was nominated, given the international nature of the award. It is not an award reserved for law only but anybody from the humanities and social sciences can be nominated.
Professor Gael McDonald
Pro Vice-Chancellor, Faculty of Business and Law
