Description: Sociological jurisprudence is to be understood as including legal analysis, theory, reform, enactment or administration, involving an understanding of what are in fact the operation and the needs of particular societies, rather than a purely historical or conceptual approach to law. It refers to an understanding and analysis of law that marries legal theory with sociological inquiry.

The prize will go to the author or authors of the entry that, since June 30, 2011, has best advanced the sociological and justice-oriented approach to jurisprudence pioneered by Julius Stone.

An entry may, but need not, consist of a book or articles. Entries of other sorts, including reports and papers, are eligible. The prize is awarded every 5 years. The author or one of the co-authors of an entry may apply directly or a third party may nominate him, her or them for the prize.
