UMLR Alumna Among Finalists for the 2018 Brown Award for Excellence in Legal Writing

We are pleased to announce that UMLR Alumna Nicole K. Chipi has been named as one of the five finalists for the 2018 Brown Award for Excellence in Legal Writing. Ms. Chipi’s paper, Eat Your Vitamins and Say Your Prayers: Bollea v. Gawker, Revenge Litigation Funding, and the Fate of the Fourth Estate, which was featured on Volume 72, Issue 1 of our publication, will be submitted to a panel of judges that will determine first, second and third place awards.

This is the second time in three years that an Alum of the Review has been among the finalists for the Brown Award, as J.P. Shami’s paper A Promise Realized? A Critical Review of Accountable Care Organizations Since the Enactment of the Affordable Care Act, was also honored at the 2016 Awards.

The Brown Award for Excellence in Legal Writing, sponsored by the Judge John R. Brown Scholarship Foundation, is a yearly competition organized by the law firm Brown Sims that recognizes excellence in Legal Writing in American Law Schools.


Please join us in congratulating Ms. Chipi! We are proud of her and all of her accomplishments.
