Steve Weston Prize

This prize is in memory of Steve Weston, a leading practitioner of oil and gas law. It’s awarded annually and is to the value of £1000.

It is given to the author or authors of a 3000-word essay of outstanding merit. The subject is selected by the end of April and is chosen with regard to Steve's interest in developing regions, and the need to develop the indigenous legal profession in those areas.

A shortlist of up to ten essays will be selected by us and the winner will then be selected by the panel. The prize is awarded by the Trustees on the recommendation of the same panel.
