Joseph Diedrich, a second-year student at UW Law School, is the winner of the 2015 Best Brief Competition. The competition, sponsored annually by UW Law's Legal Research and Writing Program, recognizes outstanding legal writing by first-year students. Diedrich wrote the winning appellate brief in his Spring 2015 Legal Research & Writing II course.
The competition involves three evaluation stages. First, Legal Research and Writing faculty select the best appellate briefs written by their students. Next, a panel of Wisconsin lawyers evaluate the semi-finalists’ briefs and choose the finalists. The finalists’ briefs are then judged independently by a panel of law school faculty, who determine the winner.
Other finalists this year were Shannon Lins and Jessica Schultz.
