ESFL’s Wolf von Laer Wins an International Vernon Smith Prize
Januar 23, 2012
We are proud to announce that European Students For Liberty’s Executive Board member, Wolf von Laer, has earned 2nd place in the European Center of Austrian Economics Foundation‘s prestigious International Vernon Smith Prize.
The Vernon Smith Prize is highly competitive. This year alone the ECAEF received papers exploring the topic, “The Rule of Law in Decline,” from 21 different countries. The three winners, decided upon by an international jury, are granted thousands of euros and invited to present their papers at a special event in Vaduz, the Principality of Liechtenstein on January 30th.
Wolf von Laer is currently working towards his Master’s degree in Austrian Economics under Dr. Jesus Huerta de Soto at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid. He learned about the Vernon Smith Prize through the Institute for Humane Studies‘ Graduate Student Newsletter, which provides information on many great opportunities open to graduate students.
