Theme

Comparative overview of provisions of the current Penal Code L. 4619/2019 (as in force after L. 4637/2019 "Amendments to the Penal Code, Criminal Procedure and related provisions) and the old Penal Code (PD 283/1985)

Description

All undergraduate students and all undergraduate law students of any School (either in Greece or abroad) were eligible to participate, regardless of whether they were permanent members of Just in Case. Participants were invited to investigate and present the changes that have occurred in the specific provisions by amending the Penal Code.  

 

For the fairest judgment of the competing texts the participants were asked to choose one of the following topics:

 

      The attempt in the old and the new Penal Code (PK 42) 

      Collaboration and synergy in the old and the new Penal Code (PK 45, 47)

      Rape in the light of the old and the new Penal Code (PK 336)

      The evolution of the criminal prosecution of the abusers of the State in the substantive criminal law

 

  The depth of the research, the accuracy, the clarity and the originality of the legal arguments were evaluated. The expression of the scientific point of view of the contestants was particularly appreciated.
