At the 14th Anniversary of the Judge JP Karuaihe Trust and trust’s 7th annual Legal Excellence Awards, several legal practitioners and aspiring lawyers were honoured for their achievements in the profession.
 This event took place earlier in November.
Since the awards are centred around the achievements of legal practititioners and law students it was decided to hold the Legal Excellence Award ceremony on the same date and prior to the start of the Annual General Meeting of the Law Society of Namibia (LSN).
This created the opportunity for  members of the LSN to be present when future legal practitioners and their peers are awarded for their achievements.
The Law Society’s involvement with the Judge JP Karuaihe 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 to acknowledge the dedication, efforts and commitment of legal practitioners who are enhancing and protecting the Rule of Law in Namibia and honouring their social responsibilities.
Florian Beukes was named the Best Justice Training Centre student for 2012 while his colleague, Alexander Gairiseb received the award for Best LLB Final Year Student.
Beukes completed his JTC qualification with an average of 77% for all eleven subjects. Gairiseb’s average mark was 72%.
The winners of the Legal Excellence Awards for Human Rights are is Wilmarie Horn who wrote a book titled The Challenge of Child Trafficking. The Legal Excellence Award for Social Responsibility went to the law firm Ellis Shilengudwa Inc.
