1/24/13: Charleston Law Review announces Student Works Edition authors

Release Date: 1/24/2013

Each spring, Charleston Law Review selects student articles to publish in a Student Works Edition. This year 30 articles were submitted by Charleston Law Review members and Charleston Law students for publication in Volume VII of the Charleston Law Review.

Of the 30 submissions, seven were selected by blind graders and approved by Editor-in-Chief Morgan Peterson and Student Works Editor Catherine K. Dunn.

“The Student Works Volume provides students the opportunity to explore a topic in an in-depth manner that takes them beyond the classroom. This year’s volume includes a variety of interesting topics, ranging from insider trading to tax to employment discrimination. The articles selected for this year’s volume constitute outstanding legal scholarship,” said faculty sponsor Professor Sheila B. Scheuerman.
