Congratulations to Jim Phillips, Philip Girard and Blake Brown!

For winning an honourable mention for the W. Wesley Pue prize for best book on a social legal subject for A History of Law in Canada vol 1: Beginnings to 1866, published by the Osgoode Society and U of T press in 2018!
Update: The citation says: "A History of Law in Canada, Volume One is a monumental and masterful work. It fills a gap in Canadian scholarship by providing a comprehensive, well-written and informative account of the history of law in Canada. Its 900 pages of text and footnotes reflect an astonishing range of knowledge. It breaks new ground in its sweep and scale, and its interweaving of the history of the three pillars of Canadian law: common law, civil law and Indigenous legal orders. It will be a classic for many years, a guide and inspiration to Canadian legal historians for generations to come."
