More prize news from the ASLH meeting: The 2011 Sutherland Prize (for "the best article on English legal history published in the previous year") went to N. G. Jones (Cambridge University), for "Wills, Trusts and Trusting from the Statute of Uses to Lord Nottingham." The article was published in the Volume 31 of the Journal of Legal History.

The Sutherland prize committee, chaired by Richard Helmholz (University of Chicago), also wished to recognize a runner-up: Matthew Stevens (University of London), for "Failed Arbitrations before the Court of Common Pleas: Cases relating to London and Londoners, 1400-1468," also published in Volume 31 of the Journal of Legal History.
