SLS Best Paper by a Doctoral Student Prize 2020

26th November 2020

The Society of Legal Scholars is delighted to announce the winner of the prize for the Best Paper by a Doctoral Student from its Annual Conference.

This was the first time this prize had been offered. Each convenor of a session in the Graduate stream was able to nominate an eligible paper from those presented at the Conference. Papers presented in the subject section were also eligible for consideration. The judging panel consisted of Professor Rebecca Probert (Exeter, Immediate Past President of the Society), Professor Christian Witting (National University of Singapore) and Natalie Wortley (Northumbria University, Acting Subject Sections Secretary).  We are very grateful to Professor Witting for judging this prize as well as the Best Paper Prize.

Having carefully read all of the nominated papers, the panel was impressed with the quality of the field. The panel was however unanimous in choosing Tim Clark’s paper on ‘The Problem of Purpose: Assessing the Rise of Teleology in the Law of International Organisations’ as the winner of Best Paper by a Doctoral Student.

The Society sends its warmest congratulates to Tim Clark on winning the Prize.
