2012-2013 Student Writing Competition Winner
The winner of the ABA Section of Antitrust Law's Annual Law Student Writing Competition is Laura Kaplan, a third-year law student at Boston College Law School, where she is the Executive Notes Editor of the Boston College Law Review. Her interest in antitrust law began before law school when she worked as a paralegal for the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice and has continued throughout her time in law school.
Laura's winning article is entitled "One Merger, Two Agencies: Dual Review in the Breakdown of the AT&T/T-Mobile Merger and a Proposal for Reform" and was published in 53 Boston Law Review 4 (2012).
After graduation, she will be clerking for Chief Justice Barbara Madsen of the Washington State Supreme Court. She hopes to incorporate her interest in antitrust into her future practice.
As the prize winner in the competition, Laura received an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., for the 61st Antitrust Spring Meeting.
