Congratulations to Dr Zach Richards who has won the UK Administrative Justice Institute Prize for New Voices in Administrative Justice for a paper presented at the University of Sheffield New Voices in Administrative Justice workshop. This generous award and cash prize was presented in recognition of Dr Richards’ outstanding contribution to a wider understanding of administrative justice. In the paper, Dr Richards innovatively combines two areas of socio-legal scholarship – legal consciousness studies and administrative justice research – to present a new model of the ideal typical legal and justice orientations of public officials. He also presents a critique of the advantages and drawbacks of each way of thinking for producing substantive justice in public administration.
