Michelle Shamblin’s article, Silencing Chicken Little: Options for School Districts after “Parents Involved,” 69 La. L. Rev. 219 (2008), has won the annual national award given by Scribes (The American Society of Legal Writers). Articles from law reviews throughout the county were submitted for this competition, and Ms. Shamblin’s article was chosen as the best student-written article of the year in a law review or journal.
This is a major accomplishment for Ms. Shamblin, the Louisiana Law Review and the LSU Law Center. Michelle will be presented with her award at the dinner of the National Conference of Law Reviews, held in Baton Rouge on March 19, 2009.
Louisiana State University Law Center congratulates Ms. Shamblin for this outstanding accomplishment and we are grateful that her scholarship has brought recognition to the Louisiana Law Review.
