Northwestern Law Students Receive Arlyn Miner Book Award

November 15, 2013

Ten Northwestern Law students received Arlyn Miner Book Awards in recognition of their excellence in persuasive writing.

Each of the 2013 award winners, Leesa Haspel (JD ’15), Matthew Heins (JD ’15), Todd Herst (JD ’14), James Jones (JD ’15), Angela Koo (JD ’15), Tessa Lee (JD ’15), Daniel Leigh (JD ’15), Michael Panzer (JD ’15), Joshua Schneider (JD ’15), and Meredith Wren (JD ’15), received a copy of the book Legal Intellectuals in Conversation. This book, edited by James Hackney, presents interviews with scholars at the forefront of the major schools of legal theory.

The Communication and Legal Reasoning faculty determine the book award recipients based on the students’ writing assignments during the spring semester of their CLR courses. Each CLR professor selects the student from his or her course section who has written the best combination of assignments to receive the award.

Established by Judith Miner in 1985, the book awards are sponsored by the Miner family, who also sponsor the second-year Julius Miner Moot Court Competition and the first-year noncompetitive Arlyn Miner Moot Court each spring.  The Law School greatly appreciates the support of Judd and Linda Miner in making these important events possible.
