Abstract

Cox and Manzer win the Martin/Carnes Competition for Excellence in Writing

Friday, September 18, 2015

Congratulations to second-year students Emily V. Cox and Alec L. Manzer, the inaugural winners of the Martin/Carnes Competition for Excellence in Writing. Cox earned the prize for best overall submission, and Manzer won the prize for most improved writing. The contest was initiated earlier this year to give rising second-year students the opportunity to analyze a legal problem and to work with a faculty adviser, who assisted in editing, refining and strengthening the competitor’s writing skills and legal arguments. The competition is named in honor of law school alumnae and U.S. Court of Appeals Judges Beverly B. Martin (J.D.’81) and Julie E. Carnes (J.D.’75).
