2019 Holt Prize Presentation

Tue Aug 27 2019

The Federation Press cordially invites you to the presentation of the 2019 Holt Prize which will be awarded to Shipra Chordia for her manuscript, Proportionality in Australian Constitutional Law.

The distinguished judging panel of Professor William Gummow AC, Justice Alan Robertson and Dr Ruth Higgins SC, were unanimous in their decision. Ms Chordia is a barrister at the NSW Bar with a PhD in Constitutional Law from UNSW and an LLB with first class honours from the University of Sydney. She is also a sessional lecturer in public law at UNSW.

The Holt Prize was established in 2015 to honour the late Christopher Holt, co-founder of The Federation Press, and is awarded every second year to a first-time author of a manuscript that covers an academic or practical area of the law. The award, which includes a publishing contract and $12,000 in prize money, reflects the ongoing commitment of The Federation Press to new authors and original Australian scholarship.
