BC Law professor Mary Bilder (pictured above) and professor emerita Sharon Hamby O’Connor, along with Harvard Law professor Charles Donahue, Jr., have been selected by The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) to receive the 2015 Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award for their work, Appeals to the Privy Council from the American Colonies: An Annotated Digital Catalogue.
The Appeals to the Privy Council project opens a digital window on colonial-era appellate cases that helped shape constitutional law in America. For more on the project, please see the earlier BC Law Online feature story.
The Andrews, awarded since 1967, is the longest-running award given out by AALL. It recognizes “a significant textual contribution to legal literature, measured by the creative, evaluative elements of the work and the extent to which originality and judgment were factors its creation.”
AALL President Holly Riccio will present Professors O’Connor, Bilder, and Donahue with their award during the Association Luncheon at the AALL Annual Meeting and Conference in Philadelphia on Tuesday, July 21, 2015.
