Artūrs Strēlnieks
Theme: Necessity of extended first aid knowledge for NAF soldiers 
Supervisor: Ivita Kīsnica

An accident always happens unexpectedly. This can happen not only in special circumstances, but also on a daily basis - at home, at school or on the road. Each of us must be able to provide first aid, and everyone may have a time when first aid is needed. 
Soldiers are trained in first aid and the training is more serious than it is in the field of first aid in the civilian environment, however, it must be admitted that in practice it is rarely applied to soldiers, because it is not possible to supplement the acquired knowledge. At a time when there is a shortage of medical personnel in Latvia, specially trained NAF soldiers, taking as an example the practice of neighboring countries, could be an alternative in providing first aid, when it may not be as operative on the part of the SEMS.

Anna Mihailova
Theme: Security deposit as an instrument for reaching the goals of criminal proceedings
Supervisor: Sigita Martinsone

In compliance with conclusions stated in the case law of the European Court of Human Rights, security deposit as an alternative security measure to arrest is becoming increasingly important and more applicable in practice also in Latvia. The European Court of Human Rights has pointed out several times that it is necessary for national courts to evaluate the possibility of applying alternative preventive measures/ means to suspects and accused persons. However, despite the important role of this security measure for achieving the goals of criminal proceedings, according to the author’s opinion, the regulation of the matters of setting the amount of the security deposit, the procedure of payment and return of the security deposit, as well as its transfer to the state budget is very superficial in the Criminal Procedure Law. Therefore, there are substantial differences in the interpretation of the law in relation to these matters. The goal of the Master’s Thesis is to develop recommendations and proposals for setting uniform criteria regulating the amount of the security deposit, the procedure of its payment and return by examining the legal provisions in force in the Republic of Latvia, the legislation of the Member States of the Council of Europe and also the case law of the ECHR.

Theme: Compliance of the activities of pharmaceutical wholesalers with the principles of Competition law
Supervisor: Mārtiņš Martinsons

The objective of the work is the evaluation of violations of competition law in the pharmaceutical sector in Latvia and the development of proposals for improvement of the legal framework.
In analysing the activities of the Latvian pharmaceutical market participants, it can be concluded that, despite the relatively large number of wholesalers, the existing market players are not sufficiently strong to exert effective competitive pressure on market leaders. One of the factors which create significant barriers to the entry of new competitors and the strengthening of existing market players is the existence of a vertically integrated retail trade network of major wholesalers, namely, large chain pharmacy networks. The existence of vertical integration and limited number of direct contracts (up to exclusivity) with the producers of medicinal products also lead to the risk of exclusion of competing pharmacies. 
The most common form of fair competition violations in Latvia in the pharmaceutical sector is the abuse and merger of market participants. The increase in market concentration leads essentially to a situation where consumer choice is increasingly reduced, while leading market players become more likely to influence the prices of drugs.

Subject: The Problematic Use of Copyrighted Work, From the Aspect of the Author and the User
Supervisor: Ingrīda Veikša

Special attention in the research has been paid to the copyright problems in the internet environment and in employment relationships. The research revealed that changes in the field of copyright, as governed by Latvian, European Union and international laws and regulations, occur rapidly because the copyright realm is significantly influenced by developments in technology. Laws and regulations are amended too late, harming the authors and holders of the material rights to the authors’ work. Institutions in charge of copyrights should constantly keep up with developments in the sector and propose respective amendments to laws and regulations. The research of the employment relationship field demonstrates that if the work is created at the expense of the employer and is directly related to the commercial activity of the company, the author has few opportunities to exercise personal rights without the employer’s approval because in many cases that may be a breach of business secrets. To achieve fairness in the relationship between the author and the employer, the Copyright Law should be amended.
