SLSA Socio-Legal Prizes

One of the SLSA's stated aims is to advance the dissemination of knowledge in the field of socio-legal studies. To that end, the Executive Committee of the SLSA invites nominations for three annual prizes sponsored by Hart Publishing and a fourth prize sponsored by a private benefactor (first awarded in 2015).

Details of the SLSA's other annual Prize for Contributions to the Socio-Legal Community sponsored by a private benefactor can be found here.
