Three Students Honored with ADR Writing Prize

2011 Nancy H. Rogers Prize in Dispute Resolution
Scholarship winners with ADR faculty

Moritz College of Law recently honored three students with the 2011 Nancy H. Rogers Prize in Dispute Resolution Scholarship. Each year, the award recognizes students who, in the judgment of a committee of faculty members who teach dispute resolution, wrote research papers on a dispute resolution topic that, in the donor's language, "reflect the analytical rigor and intellectual breadth associated with highly-regarded scholarly contributions."

The winners this year were:

  • First Prize: Alexandra Wolfe ('11), "The Power of the Written Word: The Need for Reasoned Written Arbitration Opinions"
  • Second Prize: William Froehlich ('11), "Deviating from Cy Pres with Mediation"
  • Honorable Mention: Katie Linehan ('12), "The Gacaca Courts: A Mediator’s Perspective"

“The quality of papers every year is strong,” said Director of the Program on Dispute Resolution Sarah Cole. “Many papers are nominated, and the selection process is always challenging. I want to thank Professors Stulberg, Fairman, and Cohen for taking on the tough task of serving on the selection committee.”

The Rogers Prize was created in 1999 by an anonymous donor, with the stipulation that it be named in honor of Nancy H. Rogers, who, at that time, was the Joseph S. Platt-Porter Wright Morris & Arthur Professor of Law and Director of the Program on Dispute Resolution. She now holds the Michael E. Moritz Chair in Alternative Dispute Resolution, and has served as Ohio Attorney General, Dean of the Moritz College of Law, Vice Provost for Academic Administration of The Ohio State University, and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for the Moritz College.
