Established in 2007 at Chicago-Kent College of Law by alumnus Roy C. Palmer and his wife, Susan M. Palmer, the prize honors a work of scholarship that explores the tension between civil liberties and national security in contemporary American society. The $10,000 prize is designed to encourage and reward public debate among scholars on current issues affecting the rights of individuals and the responsibilities of governments throughout the world.
Articles or books submitted to the competition must be in draft form or have been published within the six months prior to the July 1 deadline. As a condition of accepting the award, the winner will present his or her work at Chicago-Kent. Eligible books and articles should be submitted to Tasha Kincade, assistant to Dean Harold J. Krent, at tkincade[at]kentlaw.edu or 565 West Adams Street, Chicago, IL 60661-3691.
The 2007 prize was awarded to constitutional scholars David D. Cole and Jules L. Lobel for their book Less Safe, Less Free: Why America Is Losing the War on Terror (The New Press). The award-winning book is a critical analysis of the civil liberties and geopolitical implications of the Bush administration’s “war on terror” and self-described “paradigm of prevention” with respect to terrorism.
