Second and Third-Year Students Invited to Nov. 1 Cordish Writing Competition Info Sessions
Inaugurated last year through the support of the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) and the Paul Cordish Memorial Fund, the Paul Cordish Memorial Writing Competition awards $10,000 annually to the University of Maryland School of Law students who write the best paper on an issue related to insurance law, ethical issues and/or legal issues related to the public adjusting profession.
The competition, intended is intended to spur legal research in the field of insurance adjusting, was won last year by third-year student Valerie Albrecht for her paper "A Survey of Gulf Coast Legal Authorities Addressing the Extent to Which Public Insurance Adjusting Constitutes the Unauthorized Practice of Law."
Information sessions for second and third-year Maryland School of Law students interested in taking part in this year’s competition will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 1, at 12:10 p.m. in Room 460 and at 6 p.m. in Room 310.
Students unable to attend either session whom are interested in more information should contact either Professor Don Gifford or Professor Susan Hankin.
