Write about Juries for Dwyer Prize

The Federal Bar Association of the Western District of Washington sponsors the William L. Dwyer Jury Project Award writing competition. Submissions are due April 4, 2008. UW law students, if you've got thoughts about the jury system, write them down -- you can even use a related paper you've already written -- and you might win $2,000.

Last year's winner was John Goldmark (class of '08) for A Better Cross-Section of the Community: Bolstering the Quality, Function, and Legitimacy of the Jury, Fed. B. Ass'n. W. Dist. Wash. News, Fall 2007, at 11.

Second place went to Arleta Young for “Public Perception of the Jury Trial: Cause and Effect.” And the committee gave honorable mention to Woo Koo (Chris) Choi (a visiting student from Korea) for “The Japanese Jury System.” (See newsletter article.)
