The J. Carlisle Hanson Prize in Rights, Freedoms, and the Media is awarded annually, on the recommendation of the Arts Council Committee on Prizes, to a Fredericton campus student enrolled in an undergraduate Arts program who writes an outstanding essay on a subject related to the intersection of media and law, such as:

  • freedom of speech, particularly freedom of the press
  • regulatory policy; media and international human rights
  • copyright or intellectual property rights in the information age
  • information technology and privacy

Preference will be given to a paper written by a student in the Law in Society Program. This prize is funded by James Carlisle Hanson, Q.C. (BA ’46, BCL '51) of Ottawa, to commemorate his dedication to the protection of free speech.
