Organized Section 2: Law and Courts Lasting Contribution Award

Law and Courts Section Award Recipients

Law and Courts Lasting Contribution Award
The Last Contribution Award is given annually for work that stands the test of time, work that inspires long after the issue that gave rise to that work is a true mark of distinction. Each year a book or journal article, 10 years old or older, that has made a lasting impression on the field of law and courts. (From 2001 to 2007 this was titled the Wadsworth Publishing Award).
