In her article, “Reproductive Due Process,” Professor Boone explores whether additional procedural due process protections might be constitutionally required as a precondition to the criminalization of abortion. The article will be published in an upcoming issue of The George Washington University Law Review.

“I am surprised and humbled to receive this award from AALS,” Professor Boone said. “My hope is that the paper contributes to the already robust scholarly conversation about gender, reproduction, and the nature of rights. I am especially thankful to those who encouraged this non-traditional project and helped me to shepherd it to completion.”

Jonathan S. Gould, an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, also received the award for his article, “Law within Congress.”

The competition is now in its 34th year. Professor Boone received her award during the 114th AALS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
