The Podgòrecki Prize
The ISA Research Committee on the Sociology of Law established the Podgòrecki Prize in 2004, to honour the memory of Adam Podgòrecki, the founding father of RCSL and a leading figure within the international sociological community.
The Prize Committee awards the prize annually for outstanding achievements in socio-legal research, in alternate years for either distinguished and outstanding lifetime achievements, or outstanding scholarship of a socio-legal researcher at an earlier stage of his or her career.
The prize for emerging socio-legal scholars will be a commemorative certificate and a money prize, to honour and encourage colleagues that have yet to leave a mark on the international level of production of socio-legal research but who have published one or more significant works within no later than 10 years of his or her doctorate. Publications can be in any language. For works in languages other than those familiar to the Prize Committee, the nominations should give some indication of the value of the work and provide selected translations. To consider works in less well-known languages, the Prize Committee can co-opt and consult other members of the research committee.
