The European Data Protection Law Review cordially invites young researchers at the beginning of their academic career (Master or PhD students under the age of 35) to submit articles based on their thesis for the 5th annual EDPL Young Scholars Award. The five best submissions will be published in issue 1/2021 of European Data Protection Law Review. The winner of the competition will receive a one-year subscription to the European Data Protection Law Review.

They are subject to the scrutiny of an expert jury which will evaluate their quality, degree of innovation and clarity of presentation.
