Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The Saywell Prize is awarded bi-annually to the best new book in Canadian legal history, broadly defined, that makes an important contribution to an understanding of the constitution and/or federalism. The Award Panel of this prestigious prize found my book to be a ‘compelling read that unquestionably broadens our perspective on Canadian constitutional law by placing one of its leitmotivs -- POGG -- in a larger Commonwealth context.’
