The Dominica Whelan Prize Guidelines
The Dominica Whelan Prize is jointly awarded by ALLA and Federation Press for the best paper presented at the ALLA biennial national conference by a practitioner working or practising in the area of labour law, or anyone else with a professional interest in the field, other than a person who is primarily an academic or a research higher degree student.
- All Conference papers from eligible persons submitted to the Conference Organisers before the Conference deadline for the submission of written papers will be eligible for the prize.
- Any person presenting such a paper will be eligible for the prize, except: any person who is otherwise eligible for the Phillipa Weeks prize; any person who holds the academic post of Associate Professor, Professor; or an Honorary Professorial position; or a person who is appointed to the sub-committee formed to judge the prize.
The prize will be judged by a three person sub-committee appointed by the ALLA National Committee, with the prize to be awarded at the ALLA National Conference Dinner.
The prize awarded will be a book voucher provided by Federation Press and a bottle of wine (or token gift of equivalent value) provided by ALLA.
