American Society of International Law Seeking Nominations


The Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict, an interest group of the American Society of International Law (ASIL), is currently accepting nominations for its 2013 Francis Lieber Prize and its 2013 Richard R. Baxter Military Prize.

The Richard R. Baxter Military Prize recognizes a paper that significantly enhances the understanding and implementation of the law of war.  The prize is given for exceptional writing in English by an active member of the regular or reserve armed forces, regardless of nationality.

Deadline: December 31, 2012.

The Francis Lieber Prizes are awarded annually to the authors of publications that the judges consider to be outstanding in the field of law and armed conflict.  Both books and articles are eligible for consideration, as the prize is awarded to the best submission in each of these two categories.  Any relevant work in the English language published during 2012 or whose publication is imminent may be nominated for this prize.  Competitors must be 35 years old or younger at the time of submission.

Deadline: January 21, 2013.
