The Stanford Center for Law and History invites paper submissions from SLS students (including all JD and Advanced Degree students) for the SLS Legal History Paper Prize. Submissions are welcome on any topic in legal history. The prize committee will consider only work completed during the 2022-2023 academic year. Please include a brief abstract at the beginning of your paper. Please do not include any information in the paper that will identify you. Prize winners from 21-22 are ineligible for an award in 22-23, but prize winners from earlier years and “honorable mentions” from all years, including 21-22, are eligible for a prize.
The prize committee will select one SLS student as the winner of the Legal History Paper Prize who will receive a $1000 cash award.
Please direct any questions you may have to committee chair, Amalia Kessler: firstname.lastname@example.org.
