Václav Janeček (DPhil in Law) was awarded the Bolzano Prize by the Rector of Charles University in Prague, Professor Tomáš Zíma.

Each year, the Bolzano Prize is awarded in three categories, and Václav received the prize for social sciences and humanities for his book 'Critique of Legal Responsibility'.

Václav is reading for a DPhil in Law (St Edmund Hall) where he moved after studying law and philosophy at Charles University and the University of Sussex. His research interests span questions of law, philosophy, and information technologies. Previously, Václav worked as a researcher at the Oxford Internet Institute (University of Oxford) and the Law Faculty (Charles University). 

The Bolzano Prize is awarded annually for the best research produced by a student at Charles University, judged to be original, interdisciplinary and of scholarly excellence. It is arguably the most prestigious research student award in the Czech Republic; and the publications for which the authors receive the award are regarded as ground-breaking works that have, or promise to have, significant impact within their field.
