Sadie Landis Prizes in Water Law & Government Law
The Alvin &
Sadie Landis Prizes were established in honor of the Donor's
father-in-law who specialized in the areas of Water Law
and Government Law. Each year Prizes are awarded to the
student(s) who, in the judgment of the Dean, have written
the most accomplished research papers in Water Law and in
Government Law. The winner of each award shall receive $500
and will be recognized at graduation.
The Landis Prize
Competition is open to any currently enrolled student at
Boalt, including LLM & JSP students, visiting students
and Harvard Exchange students. Graduate students who are
associated with other departments, and are not law students,
cannot be published or scheduled for publication. The submissionís
research and writing must be substantially the studentís
own work (i.e. co-authored pieces are NOT eligible; if,
however, a student has developed a paper based on comments
and suggestions of professors or peers, this does not render
the paper ineligible). Note: Acceptable topics for
Government Law include, but are not limited to, Administrative
Law, State & Local Government Law, and Land Use Law.
The Government Law paper need not be environmental in scope.
