The Hardy Cross Dillard Award was established in honor of Hardy Cross Dillard, retired Judge of the International Court of Justice and former Dean and James Monroe Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law. This $300 prize is awarded to the author of the best Note by a UVA Law student in a current volume of the Virginia Journal of International Law. The Prize is awarded by a panel of three members, two of whom are on the UVA Law faculty, and at least one of whom is on our Board of Advisors.
