The Law Foundation congratulates Professor Richard Boast QC, VUW Law Faculty, for being awarded this year’s JF Northey Prize for the best book published in 2019 by a New Zealand author:
Professor Boast’s work on the Native Land Court has produced three substantial volumes spanning the years 1862-1953. All three were funded by the Law Foundation.
The first volume was a joint winner of the JF Northey Prize in 2013, and the second volume published in 2015 was also shortlisted for this prize – an amazing achievement. All were published by Thomson Reuters.
