Dwyer Jury Project Award

[EVENT] The first annual William L. Dwyer Jury Project Award was awarded on Thursday to UW 3L Rebecca Povarchuk for her paper, "The American Bar Association's Approach to Jury Reform: Necessary and Practical Steps to Modernize the Jury System for the Twenty-First Century."

The award, sponsored by the University of Washington School of Law and the Federal Bar Association of the Western District of Washington, honors the late Judge Dwyer.

In addition to being a trial lawyer and a trial judge, Dwyer wrote a book on the jury system: In the Hands of the People: The Trial Jury's Origins, Triumphs, Troubles, and Future in American Democracy (KF9680 .D89 2002 at Classified Stacks).
