Florida State Law Students Honored by the Environmental and
Land Use Law Section of The Florida Bar

L-R: Jon Harris Maurer ('12) and Trevor Smith ('13)

Two Florida State University College of Law alumni placed first and second in the Environmental and Land Use Law Section (ELULS) of The Florida Bar's Maloney Writing Competition. Named after Dean Frank E. Maloney, the annual contest honors the top three student papers on an environmental or land use topic.

Caitlin Jenkins ('12) received first place and Jon Harris Maurer ('12) received second, based on submissions they penned while students at the College of Law. Jenkins' article was entitled "No Net Loss Policy for Water Management in Florida" and Maurer's was entitled "Ocean Acidification, Marine Sanctuaries, and Adapting Remedies to Climate Change."

Addititonally, Trevor Smith ('13) was awarded the ELULS Wade Hoping Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a law student who has demonstrated an affinity and commitment to environmental and land use law.

The recent grads and student will be recognized at the section's annual meeting in August.
