The APA is pleased to announce that Patrick Tomlin (University of Reading) has been awarded the 2017 Berger Memorial Prize for his article, “Retributivists! The Harm Principle Is Not For You!”
Tomlin will be awarded $500, and a symposium in his honor will be held at the 2017 APA Pacific Division meeting in Seattle, WA.
The Berger Memorial Prize was established by the APA in memory of Professor Fred Berger of the University of California at Davis. The prize was made possible by gifts to the APA from Professor Berger's friends, relatives, and colleagues following his untimely death in 1986. The prize is awarded to an outstanding published article in philosophy of law by a member of the association.
