Sue Painter-Thorne at Mercer has announced:
"The Adam A. Milani Disability Law Writing Competition is a national disability law writing competition sponsored by the Mercer University School of Law and the ABA Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law. The competition honors the work of the late Professor Adam Milani, a passionate advocate for disability rights, an accomplished legal scholar, and a beloved faculty member at the Law School. Adam was a long-time legal writing professor and a dear friend and colleague to all of us in the legal writing community.
"This year two winners were selected from many fantastic entries. The first place winner is Margaret Dreschel, from the Berkeley Law School. Congratulations to Ms. Dreschel and her legal writing professor Michelle Cole.
