Writing Competitions

Best Brief Competition

The finalists in the Spring 2018 Best Brief Competition are Doug McIntosh, Julia Mumm, Sarah Wertz, and Kelly Wilfert.

The Best Brief Competition is an annual event that recognizes outstanding legal writing by first-year students.  The Legal Research and Writing faculty select the best appellate briefs from among those written by their spring semester students.  Next, Wisconsin attorneys evaluate the semi-finalists' briefs to determine who will become finalists.  A panel of Law School faculty then evaluates the finalists' briefs to decide the winner.  The winner of the competition will be announced by the end of September 2018.

Congratulations to the finalists!
