The Zines Prize

Emeritus Professor Leslie Zines

The Zines Prize is named after one of Australia’s most outstanding legal scholars, Professor Leslie Zines, who passed away in 2014. It was established in 2010 and has been awarded annually since then to both honour his work (and now his memory) and recognise, encourage, and reward excellence in legal scholarship by others.

All authors of published articles in the Federal Law Review are eligible to win the prize, which is awarded based on the decision of the Prize Committee. The 2015 Zines Prize Judging Panel comprised Professors Peter Cane, Dennis Pearce, and Kim Rubenstein. We are pleased to announce that the 2015 winner of the Zines Prize is Stephen Gageler.
