UNAIR NEWS – After successfully winning runner up title at Parahyangan Legal Competition 2018, three students of Faculty of Law (FH) Universitas Airlangga made another achievement. They won the Best Paper award in a scientific writing competition (KTI) organized by Faculty of Law Student Executive Board, University Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta on Wednesday, April 11.
The three students were Antonius Gunawan (2015), Hidayatur Rohman (2015), Muhammad Dayyan Sunni (2015). They were members of Semi-Autonomous Body (BSO) of Airlangga Young Jurist Community (MYMA) FH UNAIR. They are under the guidance of Bagus Oktavian Abrianto, S.H, M.H.
After successfully passing the preliminary round, they presented their paper with nine other participants from various universities such as, Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Negeri Surakarta, Universitas Brawijaya, and Univesitas Negeri Semarang.
“Early registration was around February. Then from 40 registrants only the best ten can proceed to the next round. The writing process ran well there were obstacles related to administration and funds. But thankfully we can finally leave and represent UNAIR, “said Rohman.
Rohman and his friends won the best paper. Although they were not among the winners, but the delegates were proud of their achievement.
In that competition, the first winner was from Universitas Negeri Surakarta, 2nd winner was Univesitas Negeri Semarang, and the third winner was Universitas Brawijaya.
From that competition, Rohman said that they learned a lot of things. For example, in terms of presentation. The other delegates were very creative. They use supporting tools such as x-banners, posters, videos while he and his team, only relied on paper and memory.
“The participation of FH students in this writing competition is not very often. Most of students’ interests are in the debate and the National Moot Court Competition. Hopefully from this achievement, the other students are inspired to follow the next competition, “added Rohman. (*)
