Established in memory of Michael Greenberg, a former National LGBT Bar Association board member and Philadelphia attorney who died in 1996 from complications of AIDS, this exciting competition is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing outstanding law student scholarship on the legal issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. Each year, the LGBT Bar receives dozens of submissions from law students on the cutting edge legal issues affecting the LGBT community. The winning article will be published in the Tulane Journal of Law & Sexuality: A Review of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Law.
The Bar is proud to announce the winners of the 2014 Michael Greenberg Student Writing Competition. Jillian Lenson has been selected as the winner, Ginger Grimes is the first runner-up and Andrew Stankevich has been selected as second runner-up.
