Read the press release, "Finest Law School Writers Selected by the Burton Awards."
The Burton Legal Writing awards are among the most prestigious law student awards in the nation. Each year, every law school is invited to nominate one piece of student writing for this award. Only ten law students are selected to receive the award each year.
This is the 19th year of Burton Legal Writing Awards. A William & Mary law student has received one of these awards on ten occasions. The only law schools to have received more Burton Legal Writing awards than William & Mary are Georgetown and the University of Pennsylvania.
Thomas Jefferson founded William & Mary Law School in 1779 to train leaders for the new nation. Now in its third century, America's oldest law school continues its historic mission of educating citizen lawyers who are prepared both to lead and to serve.
