Peter Oliver Prize in Canadian Legal History
The Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History invites nominations for the Peter Oliver Prize in Canadian Legal History. The prize, named for Professor Peter Oliver, the Society’s founding editor-in-chief, is awarded annually for published work (journal article, book chapter, book) in Canadian legal history written by a student. Students in any discipline at any stage of their careers are eligible. The Society takes a broad view of legal history, one that includes work in socio-legal history, legal culture, etc., as well as work on the history of legal institutions, legal personnel, and substantive law.
Faculty members are encouraged to nominate student work of which they are aware, and the Society will also be pleased to accept self-nominations. The deadline for nominations for the 2016 Prize, to be awarded for work published in 2015, is April 30, 2016.
Please send nominations and an electronic version of the nominated work to Professor Philip Girard, Associate Editor, Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
