ACS student chapter at NYU holds first annual legislation competition

Over at ACSblog, NYU law students Zachary Kolodin and Sarah Molinoff have a guest post about an exciting new venture:

The New York University School of Law ACS Student Chapter broke new ground this year by launching its first annual Legislation Competition. Inspired by the work of American Legislative and Issue Campaign Exchange (ALICE), the NYU ACS Student Chapter partnered with the NYU Journal of Legislation and Public Policy to create a real-life policy problem and asked law students to come up with solutions that could be translated into legislation at the state level. Participants in the competition drafted model state-level bills and wrote policy papers advocating for and explaining their proposed legislation.

The winning entry, by first-year student Cerin Lindgrensavage, will appear in an upcoming edition of Quorum, the online publication of the Journal of Legislation and Public Policy.  You can read more about it and the competition itself at the ACSblog

Congratulations to the winner, all the students who submitted entries, and the members and editors of NYU's ACS Student Chapter and the Journal of Legislation and Public Policy!
