Blackstone Award

The Blackstone Award is named for Sir William Blackstone (1723–1780), the English jurist and politician whose work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, transformed the study of the common law. Awarded for the first time in 2011 to William C. Burton, the Friends’ Blackstone Award also recognizes and acknowledges a significant contribution to the mission and activities of the U.S. Law Library of Congress.
