The students of Slovenian law faculties participated in the current 11th in a row RUBIKON Contest. After the preliminary stage, 10 participants became finalists; 2 of them were the representatives of the Law Faculty from the University of Maribor.

The Commission assessed the credibility of performance and strength of legal arguments. The winner is a first year student of the Law Faculty of the University of Maribor — Aljoša Polajžar. This is the first time when a first year student wins this Contest.
