2024 Podgórecki Prize – Call now open

The Podgórecki Prize is awarded annually by the RCSL for outstanding achievements in socio-legal research. It recognises, in alternate years, distinguished and outstanding lifetime achievements, and, as it will do in 2024, outstanding scholarship by a socio-legal researcher at an earlier stage of their career.

In 2024 the RCSL Jury Committee for the Podgórecki Prize calls for nominations for the Prize for emerging socio-legal scholars who have published one or more significant works within no more than 10 years of their doctorate. The prize for emerging socio-legal scholars is a commemorative certificate, 8 years of complimentary RCSL membership, and participation as observer in the RCSL Board from summer 2024 to summer 2026.

Nominations require the support of at least two members of the RCSL, and should include the candidate’s CV and a brief letter of support signed by the nominators. Members of the 2024 Jury Committee are not allowed to sign as nominators. It is desirable, but not essential, that nominees are members of RCSL. Previous nominees may be re-nominated in this 2024 round, with updated letters of support and CVs. The Jury Committee does not have access to previous correspondence or reviews.

Publications may be in any language. For works in languages other than those familiar to the Jury Committee, the nominations should give an indication of the value of the work and provide selected translations. To consider works in less well-known languages, the Jury Committee may co-opt and consult other RCSL members.
