We’re delighted that our new Law Fellow, Dr Kate Greasley, has been shortlisted for the Inner Temple Book Prize 2018.
The prize, which was established in 2009, celebrates outstanding contributions to the understanding of law and is one of the field’s highest honours. Kate has been shortlisted in the New Authors category for her 2017 book ‘Arguments about Abortion: Personhood, Morality, and Law’. The book, published by Oxford University Press, offers an extended analysis of the moral and legal status of abortion and brings the philosophical notion of ‘personhood’ to the foreground of the debate.
Accompanying Kate on the shortlist is her predecessor as Tutorial Fellow in Law at Hertford. Emeritus Fellow Alison Young, who recently took up the chair of Public Law at the University of Cambridge, has been shortlisted in the Main Prize category for ‘Democratic Dialogue and the Constitution’, also published by OUP.
Congratulations to both Kate and Alison and good luck for the announcement of the winners!
