Olivia Schwartz, a second-year student at UW Law School, was named the winner of the 2019 Best Brief Competition. Finalists were Michael Doering, Camilo Mesa and Josi Wergin.

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.
