As part of its mandate to encourage and develop the interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary study of the relations between law and society, the CLSA awards a number of prizes for scholarship on law and society. Winners are announced at the annual meeting in early summer.
The CLSA Book Prize is awarded annually for the best book on law and society published in the previous year in English or in French.
The CLSA Article Prize is awarded for the best article published in the Canadian Journal of Law & Society. For English articles, the award is given annually for an article published in the previous year. For French articles, the award is given biennially for articles published in the two previous years.
The Roderick A. Macdonald Graduate Student Essay Prize is awarded annually for the best essay on a topic in law and society written by a graduate student at a Canadian university.
