John T. Saywell Prize for Canadian Constitutional Legal History
The Saywell Prize is made possible by the generosity of his family and friends, to recognise the outstanding contribution to Canadian political and legal history of Professor Saywell. Among his other work Professor Saywell is the author of The Law Makers: Judicial Power And The Shaping of Canadian Federalism, published by the Osgoode Society in 2002.
The Saywell Prize is given bi-annually to the best new book in Canadian legal history, broadly defined, that makes an important contribution to an understanding of the constitution and/or federalism. In exceptional circumstances, the jury could also consider a seminal article or series of articles, some of the latter not written in the two-year period, to satisfy the objectives of the award.
The Saywell Prize will be awarded in June 2015, for a book published in 2013 or 2014. The deadline for nominations for 2015 is April 30, 2015. Please email nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org
