Laura Schroeder wins UW Law's Best Brief Competition

Prof. Margaret Baumgartner and Dean Raymond
present the Best Brief award to Laura Schroeder

Laura Schroeder, a second-year student at UW Law School, was named the winner of the 2016 Best Brief Competition. The competition, sponsored annually by the Law School's Legal Research and Writing Program, recognizes outstanding legal writing by first-year students.

The Best Brief award involves three rounds of competition. 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.

Jonathon Davies was the runner-up for this year’s competition. Other finalists were Claire Dennis, Dustin Page, and Chelsea Wilfong.
