Grants and Awards
The ALT offers a number of grants and award schemes, available to paid-up members, and advertised via our Newsletter.
Routledge/ALT Teaching Law with Technology Prize
The Routledge / ALT Teaching Law with Technology Prize is designed to reward innovation that promotes student learning and engagement, and advances academic understanding of the benefits of blending traditional pedagogy with new forms of technology.
If you are blogging, clicking, tweeting, facebooking, creating videos or podcasts, or using your school’s VLE to connect in new ways or developing mobile apps with your students we want to hear from you and to tell and share your story.
The Law Teacher and ALT Annual Seminar Prize
The Law Teacher: the International Journal of Legal Education, together with the Association of Law Teachers, offers an annual fund to support one or more research seminars addressing the subject of legal education.
We are keen to promote high quality legal education scholarship that can be described as rigorous with significant reach. We will therefore particularly welcome those proposals that bring together leading international scholars in the field of legal education and which provides a significant opportunity to bring the legal education community together.
The Law Teacher will have the first right of refusal to publish papers presented at funded seminars. Papers are therefore expected to be original and unpublished.
Papers are expected to have a significant empirical and/or theoretical component.
Stan Marsh Prizes for ‘Best Paper’ and ‘Best Poster’
Each year an annual ‘Best Paper’ and ‘Best Poster’ prize is awarded at the Annual Conference. The award is named after the founding Chair of the Association.
Stan Marsh Bursary
For the Portsmouth Conference 2017, there are three categories of bursary for which application can be made:
- First Attendance Bursary: This bursary is open to any teacher of law in the HE or FE sector who is attending their first conference and is unable to secure full conference fees from their employing institution.
- School/College Bursary: This bursary is open to any teacher teaching Law (in its widest sense) in a School or College of Further Education and is unable to secure full conference fees from their employing institution.
- Doctoral Student Bursary: This bursary is open to any student on a ‘D’ level programme investigating/researching legal education (in any jurisdiction).
Each bursary will cover the full costs of the conference plus accommodation: delegates will be responsible for their own travel costs.
Delegates should complete a registration for the Conference before Friday 3 February.
The Committee would be grateful if you would also agree to write a short report about the conference for publication on the website during May/June 2017. It is NOT a requirement of a bursary that the delegate is presenting a paper at the conference. Delegates who meet the criteria for bursaries are encouraged to apply for each as relevant. It is possible that part bursaries may be made where two or more delegates are able to secure part funding from their institution. Applicants should state clearly how much funding the institution is able to provide.

ALT Research Informed Learning Impact Grant Scheme
This bursary is open to anyone teaching law (in its widest sense) in a school or college of Further Education and is unable to secure full conference fees from their employing institution.
