Call for Submissions: “Cromwell Article Prize,” American Society for Legal History

June 1, 2020

Best article in American legal history published by an early career scholar.
June 1, 2020
The William Nelson Cromwell Foundation Article Prize is awarded annually to the best article in American legal history published by an early career scholar. Articles published in the field of American legal history, broadly conceived, will be considered. There is a preference for articles in the colonial and early National periods. Articles published in the Law and History Review are eligible for the Surrency Prize and will not be considered for the Cromwell Article Prize.
The author of the winning article receives a prize of $5,000. The Foundation awards the prize after a review of the recommendation of the Cromwell Prize Advisory Committee of the American Society for Legal History.
The Cromwell Foundation makes the final award, in consultation with a subcommittee from the American Society for Legal History. This subcommittee invites nominations for the article prize. Authors are invited to nominate themselves or others may nominate works meeting the criteria that they have read and enjoyed. Please send a brief letter of nomination, no longer than a page, along with an electronic copy (or URL of the publication site) of the article, by June 1, 2020, to the subcommittee chair, Prof. David Konig, at [email protected].
