Morris D. Forkosch Prize Recipients

The Morris D. Forkosch Prize is offered annually in recognition of the best book in English in the field of British, British imperial, or British Commonwealth history. It replaces the Robert Livingston Schuyler Prize covering the same fields. Submission of books relating to the shared common law heritage of the English-speaking world are particularly encouraged in memory of the late Professor Forkosch's contributions to the field of legal studies and legal history.
