APA Awards Philosophy of Law Prize

The American Philosophical Association (APA) has awarded the 2017 Berger Memorial Prize to Patrick Tomlin (University of Reading). The Berger Prize is awarded every other year, in odd years, to “an outstanding published article in philosophy of law” written by an APA member. 

Tomlin won the award for his “Retributivists! The Harm Principle Is Not For You!” which appeared in the January 2014 issue of Ethics (ungated copy of article here).  

The award includes $500 and, if possible, an opportunity to present the paper at the Pacific Division meeting of the APA. Further details here.
