Brittany Jones '11 wins second place in Joint Southeast/Southwest and Mid-West People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference writing competition

Brittany Jones '11 won second place in the student writing competition for the 2011 Joint Southeast/Southwest and Mid-West People of Color Legal Scholarship Conference. Her paper, "The Price of a Slave: Racially Disparaging Trademarks and their Analysis under the Lanham Act," was originally written for Professor Paulette Caldwell's course, Race and Legal Scholarship.

"Brittany has what every successful person needs: smarts, discipline, bearing, and a sense of fun,"  says Caldwell.

Jones, who will receive a $500 cash award, is the second NYU BALSA member to be recognized in this writing competition. Two years ago, Jennifer Swayne '09, won first prize for "Reconciling Voluntary Integration with Residential and Public School Segregation," a paper she wrote for Caldwell's Education Law course.
