Dr Kirsty HughesDr Kirsty Hughes has been awarded the Wedderburn Prize (jointly with Jo Braithwaite, LSE), awarded by the Modern Law Review.

The article "A behavioural understanding of privacy and its implications for privacy law" M.L.R. 2012, 75(5), 806-836 presents a theory of privacy based on the behavioural approach of social interaction theory.

The Wedderburn Prize is named in honour of Lord Wedderburn of Charlton, who served as General Editor of the Review from 1971 to 1988. It is awarded annually for a contribution to that year's volume which in the opinion of the Editorial Committee is exemplary of the type of scholarship that The Modern Law Review aims to promote. In awarding this Prize, the Committee pays particular attention to the work of authors who are at a relatively early stage of their careers.

The Modern Law Review was established in 1937 as a charity devoted to the promotion of legal education, the study of law and all other arts and sciences which may be of interest to those involved in the study or practice of law. MLR promotes these objectives by the publication of the law review and also by the organisation of lectures, seminars, scholarships and prizes that support legal education and scholarship.
