The Harry J. Kalven, Jr. Award is awarded by the Law and Society Association for "empirical scholarship that has contributed most effectively to the advancement of research in law and society." Nominations are open to all forms of law and society scholarship, and from any country of origin, although copies submitted to the committee must be in English.

Self-nominations are accepted - if self nominating, please include a statement of why you feel you deserve the award in place of the letter of support.

The award carries a cash prize of $500.

  • A letter of support from the nominator
  • The candidate’s curriculum vitae
  • 1 of 2 additional letters of support will be accepted, but are not required.
