          The David Yale Prize.  The prize was instituted in 1998 in honour of Mr David Yale, FBA, then President of the Society and formerly Literary Director.  A fund was provided by contributions from various professional bodies and by private donors.  The prize is for an outstanding contribution to the history of the law of England and Wales by a person under the age of 35.  A competition is held in alternate years.   A prize of £1,000 was awarded in 1999, 2001, 2003, and 2007.  Full details of the prize regulations and of the current competition may be obtained from the Secretary.  The rules of the competition are posted on the Society’s London website.
