Dr. Amy Chazkel's book has received the 2012 J. Willard Hurst Prize of the Law and Society Association and Honorable Mention for the Latin American Studies Association Brazil Section Best Book Prize for 2012

Dr. Amy Chazkel's new book, Laws of Chance: Brazil's Clandestine Lottery and the Making of Urban Public Life in Brazil (Duke University Press, 2010) has received two honors.

The book is a co-winner of the 2012 J. Willard Hurst Prize of the Law and Society Association. The Hurst prize is given annually (biennially prior to 2002) by the Law and Society Association for the best work in English in sociolegal history published in the previous year. In the spirit of Willard Hurst's own work, the field of sociolegal history is broadly defined to include the history of interrelationships between law and social, economic, and political change; the history of functions and impact of legal agencies, legislative and administrative as well as judicial; the social history of the legal profession; and similar topics. The Association seeks studies in legal history that explore the relationship between law and society or illuminate the use, function, and cultural meaning of law and society.
Dr. Chazkel's book also received Honorable Mention for the Latin American Studies Association Brazil Section Best Book Prize for 2012.
