John T. Saywell Prize for Canadian Constitutional Legal History for 2015

  • Hakeem Yusuf (Recipient)

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)

Description

'The Saywell Prize is given bi-annually to the best new book in Canadian legal history, broadly defined, that makes an important contribution to an understanding of the constitution and/or federalism.' The Award Panel of this prestigious prize found my book, Colonial and Post-Colonial Constitutionalism in the Commonwealth: Peace, Order and Good Government (Routledge Abingdon 2014) to be 'a compelling read that unquestionably broadens our perspective on Canadian constitutional law by placing one of its leitmotivs -- POGG -- in a larger Commonwealth context.'
