The EAPL prizes are:
- a Lifetime Achievement Award,
- a Mid Career Award (PhD no more than 15 years prior to year of nomination), and
- an Early Career Award (PhD no more than 5 years prior to year nomination).
The rules for nomination and price giving are as follows:
- The EAPL President-Elect convenes (via e-mail) a committee of around five research-active full members of EAPL (generally at least 2 female members but we agreed that for the next 2 years it would be 3 female members) who represent a variety of (i) countries, (ii) aspects of psychology-law, (iii) stages in their careers. One person in the award committee is responsible for attending to the diversity in the nomination and the decision. The committee decides confidentially on who will be awarded. The confidentiality is partly to ‘protect’ ‘unsuccessful’ people who have been nominated but who know nothing about having been nominated.
- Nominations for the early career award, the mid-career awards and the life achievement award are to be sought by contacting all members of EAPL inviting them to nominate a worthy person rather than asking just the committee to suggest names. We ask for a CV and a letter of recommendation only for the early career awards. In this case non-members of EAPL can be nominated for this award, but they should currently be working in Europe. Only members of EAPL can be nominated for the mid career and life achievement award.

Previous recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award
One way the EAPL acknowledges academic excellence is by bestowing the EAPL lifetime achievement award upon academics who have demonstrated particular excellence, impact, and involvement in the field of psychology and law.
