Congratulations to our past president Shaunnagh Dorsett (UTS) for her book Juridical Encounters: Maori and the Colonial Courts 1840-1852 (Auckland UP) and Jane McCabe (Otago) for her book Race, Tea and Colonial Settlement (Bloomsbury) who have been jointly awarded New Zealand’s prestigious Ian Wards Prize for 2018. This prize recognises an outstanding piece of published NZ historical writing that demonstrates either ‘innovative’ or ‘exemplary’ use of primary sources. It is awarded annually by the Archives and Records Association of New Zealand.
Nominations for our own society’s annual prize in legal history close Monday 24 September. See the Prizes page for details.
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
