Harris Kyriakides organised a Memorial Day at the Larnaca Municipal Theatre on Monday, May 13, 2024, to honour and express gratitude to its founder.

During the event, the establishment of the Harris Kyriakides Foundation in memory of Harris Kyriakides was announced, aiming to continue his vision and work through a series of annual activities. The mission of the Harris Kyriakides Foundation is to support the next generation of talented young lawyers, helping them develop knowledge and skills and contribute to their ongoing professional education as well as the empowerment and development of their careers.

The first initiative announced by the Harris Kyriakides Foundation is an annual scholarship for a Cypriot student at the University of Oxford. The programme will last from the academic years 2023 to 2027, with the Harris Kyriakides Foundation funding scholarships of £10,000 annually. Eligible candidates will include both Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot students enrolled in either the Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) or Magister Juris (MJur) programmes and have chosen the Civil Procedure course. This is a way for Cyprus to continue creating its own legal tradition, which began with the few lawyers who practiced after independence, such as Harris Kyriakides.

Additionally, the Harris Kyriakides Foundation announced, in collaboration with Harris Kyriakides, the organisation of annual educational programs and lectures on the fundamental principles of the legal profession's code of ethics and conduct, aimed at young lawyers. The goal of this initiative is to familiarise young lawyers with ethical and conduct issues, both theoretically and practically, adhering to the highest standards as Harris Kyriakides himself did.

Finally, the beginning of a collaboration between the Harris Kyriakides Foundation and the Municipality of Larnaca was announced, with the aim of supporting various initiatives in the city where Harris Kyriakides founded his firm and family. The first project of the collaboration will be the Harris Kyriakides Foundation's contribution to the construction of the Salina Municipal Park. Spanning an area of 14,000 square meters, a beautiful urban park is being developed in the center of Larnaca, which is expected to connect with the Municipal Garden, forming the city's most significant green area. The Harris Kyriakides Foundation will contribute to the landscaping of the Salina Municipal Park in coordination with the municipal authorities, financially supporting the implementation of the design and the creation of the space, ensuring that it remains clean and available for the city's needs. The aim of the Harris Kyriakides Foundation is to continue implementing an annual action, always in consultation with the municipal authorities, contributing and assisting in honouring Harris Kyriakides's desire for continuous progress and prosperity for Larnaca and its people.
