As announced at our AGM in Christchurch, the judges commended the original approach and high quality of all submissions. Their final decision was to award the prize to:
Mark Finnane & Andy Kaladelfos ‘Race and Justice in and Australian Court: Prosecuting Homicide in Western Australia 1830-1954’. Australian Historical Studies, 47, 2016.
Congratulations to Mark and Andy for a work which was praised as
elegantly conceived, clearly argued and supported with graphical presentation of data, the authors make a significant contribution to the understanding of the administration of criminal justice in Western Australia spanning over 100 years from early settlement.
The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places.
The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales. Inc no. 1600224
