The Wedderburn Prize is named in honour of Lord Wedderburn of Charlton, who served as General Editor of the Review from 1971 to 1988. It is awarded annually for a contribution to that year’s volume which in the opinion of the Editorial Committee is exemplary of the type of scholarship that the Modern Law Review aims to promote. In awarding this Prize, the Committee pays particular attention to the work of authors who are at a relatively early stage of their careers.
The Wedderburn Prize is awarded annually at the Chorley Lecture and Dinner in June. The winner of the 2017 Wedderburn Prize is Abi Adams and Jeremias Prassl for their article ‘Vexatious Claims: Challenging the Case for Employment Tribunal Fees’.
