We are deeply saddened to announce the tragic and untimely passing of CEU alumna Erica Lane-Tamuza (USA, LEGS 2003), wife of fellow alumnus Kristaps Tamuzs (Latvia, LEGS 2003), on June 1, 2012 in the Hague, Netherlands.
Erica was a beloved spouse, mother, daughter, sister and friend. She was a graduate of CEU's Legal Studies program, as well as The Ellis School of Georgetown University and The University of Pittsburgh Law School. Until her untimely passing, she worked as a legal officer with the United Nations Special Tribunal for Lebanon, based in The Hague.
In 2011, CEU's Alumni Relations & Career Services and Development offices worked together with CEU alumnus, recipient of CEU's 20th Anniversary Alumni Hero Award, Bruce Lasky (USA, LEGS '03), and Bridges Across Borders South East Asia: Community Legal Education Initiative (BABSEA CLE) to establish a new award program for Legal Masters Human Rights Program graduates of CEU.
