Gideon Yaffe wins Berger Prize
The winner of the APA's Berger Prize is Gideon Yaffe for his article "Excusing Mistakes of Law" (found here and published by The Philosophers' Imprint). The Berger Prize is awarded by the APA's Committee on Philosophy and Law and goes to the best article or chapter in the field of legal philosophy over the last two years. As the Committee Chair, I can confirm that we received several strong submissions that led to some discussions between members in determining the winner, although we all agreed that this piece was the worthy winner. Many congrats, Gideon!
