Law School Clinches First, Second, Third in Elder Law Writing Competition

Papers on dying without a will, the right to die, and retirement securities took the top three spots at the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) writing competition—and all of them were written by UVA law students. Their articles will be published in the NAELA Student Journal, which comes out each year and they will be recognized at the Fall 2007 NAELA Institute in Memphis, Tennessee, this November. The competition is held each year to encourage law students to learn more about elder law and gain a deeper understanding of the field.
