SLSA Lifetime Achievement awards

Lifetime Achievement awards for two Keele Law Professors

The Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA) has announced that the SLSA Prize for Contributions to the Socio-Legal Community 2018 will be jointly awarded to Professor Tony Bradney and Professor Fiona Cownie at its Annual Conference in April 2019.

Writing about the award on behalf of the Association, Professor Phil Thomas, founding editor of the leading socio-legal journal, the Journal of Law and Society, described the professors as ‘a wonderful academic couple [who] have over decades produced path-breaking scholarship in the fields of legal education, study skills, legal profession, and law and religion’.

Professors Bradney and Cownie have used their knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the Socio-Legal Studies Association since its foundation in the early 1990s. They have organised annual conferences, convened the Legal Education sessions at the Annual Conference and for 25 years (without a break) have contributed every January to the SLSA Postgraduate Conference, sharing their experience of socio-legal research and education with many generations of socio-legal scholars.

The Prize will be awarded at the Association’s Annual Conference, which is to be held at the University of Leeds in April 2019.
