Graduate students Alix Winter (pictured) and Matthew Clair have received the 2017 John Hope Franklin Prize for their article, "How Judges Think About Racial Disparities: Situational Decision-Making in the Criminal Justice System." The John Hope Franklin Prize was established in 2010 by the Law and Society Association to recognize exceptional scholarship in the field of Race, Racism and the Law. The award is awarded annually and is named for John Hope Franklin, a professor of history and law whose interdisciplinary research documented the history of racism and its effects, whose scholarship had both national and international influence, and whose commitments to intellectual freedom, professional service, and civic activism were resolute. Congratulations, Alix and Matt!
