The Labour Law Research Network, representing the global community of labour law scholars, recognizes exceptional and longstanding contributions with the Bob Hepple Award for Lifetime Achievement in Labour Law. The Award was previously called the LLRN Award for Distinguished Scholarship in Labour Law. In 2015, the LLRN Advisory Committee decided to rename the Award in honour of the late Bob Hepple, one of the inaugural recipients of the Award, as a permanent reminder to all labour law colleagues of Bob's towering achievements. It was hoped that the renaming of the Award will in some small, symbolic way, help to ensure that Bob's generous spirit will always be with us.
