The Brian Williams Memorial Prize

About the Brian Williams Memorial Prize

This Prize is dedicated to the late Professor Brian Williams, co-editor of the British Journal of Community Justice from 2002-2007.

 

Brian introduced a commitment in the Journal to publishing the papers of new academic writers and in particular students studying in the broad area of community and criminal justice. The British Journal of Community Justice proudly announced the launch of the Brian Williams Memorial Prize in 2009.

 

Each year the Prize is awarded to a previously unpublished undergraduate or postgraduate student studying in an academic area relevant to the British Journal of Community Justice. Articles are submitted from until 30th September for consideration in the Brian Williams Memorial Prize that year.


Winning articles are then announced and published in the British Journal of Community Justice during the following year. A prize of £150 is also awarded to the winner.
