Speaking of student authorship, ACS recently announced the winners of the Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition and its National Student Writing Competition. The Cudahy Writing Competition awards top lawyer and student papers that best reflect Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Cudahy's insight into the institutional forces that determine how doctrine is implemented, and appreciation of the public impact of doctrinal and institutional choices. The winner of the student entry was Dan Walters, of Wisconsin Law School, for his paper, Litigation-Fostered Bureaucratic Autonomy: Exploring the Institutional Roots of a Post-Chevron Moment in Administrative Law and Politics.
The winning paper of ACS's National Student Writing Competition was Marquette University law school student Nathan Fronk, for his article, Doniger v. Niehoff: An Example of Public Schools' Paternalism and the Off-Campus Restrictions of Students' First Amendment Rights. Fronk's article will be published in the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law, which co-sponsored the competition.
