Legal Brief Writing Contest Announced by New Tupper
Lake Business Association
On Friday, November 19th,
the newly created Tupper Lake Business Community, Inc. announced a
writing contest that is being submitted to law schools around the
country, seeking students who are interested in preparing a brief
concerning the influences that have had a negative effect on the
Adirondack economy. Full details and rules regarding the
contest are posted online at http://tlbusiness.org.
First prize for the writing contest
will be $7,500; second prize $2,000; and third prize $500. All
brief submissions must be received by April 15th.
The panel of judges will be announced in the near future.
Committee Spokespeople Mark Moeller
and Beth Johnson told the group of nearly 50 people, that there has
been tremendous attention given to the environment in the Adirondack
Park, with little regard to the economy. Moeller noted, "the
intent of the contest is to have the law students from around the
country review the influences on local businesses as well as on the
regulatory agencies within the Adirondack Park, by outside parties
and preservationist advocacy groups, and to prepare a brief that
will be judged by a panel of experts in order to highlight and
quantify the impact those influences have had on the economy and the
people of the Adirondacks."
Johnson added, "we believe this group
supports the true intent of the Adirondack Park Act, and believes
the staff of the Adirondack Park Agency are true professionals that
care about the environment and economy of the Park. This
effort is not directed at them." Johnson went on to say,
"there are groups who have had an undue adverse impact on our
economy, and have used tactics that have come at a great cost to the
local economies within the Park."
Moeller also clarified the difference
between this group and ARISE. "The TLBC group has a very
narrow focus with donations going for a specific purpose.
ARISE has a more broad approach, and they are not set up for this
type of advocacy."
The writing contest will focus
specifically on Tupper Lake, knowing that much of the information
provided by the students, will have a regional implication.
Attorneys Doug Wright and Kirk
Gagnier, have been in contact with top law schools and, gauging the
reaction by some of the professors, have reported that there seems
to be overwhelming excitement about the project. Gagnier said,
"there is a growing trend across the country, that advocacy group
influence has come at a quantifiable cost, and this writing contest
will offer a legal opinion on the impact felt in Tupper Lake."
Wright added, "there has been no
discussion of this leading to a legal suit against any groups or
individuals. This is an educational, research based effort
that will be reviewed carefully after the submissions are made."
Business Community, Inc. is a New York not-for-profit
association of businesses, formed to aggressively solicit
information and solutions from various groups to advance the
business environment in upstate New York, specifically Tupper
Lake. More information is available at http://tlbusiness.org.

The ABA Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship
The ABA Business Law Section Diversity Clerkship
Program will place selected students in judicial clerkship positions
for the summer of 2011. The
clerkship program is open to 1L and 2L students and has a deadline
of January 21, 2011
. More information on how to
apply, including a copy of the application, is available at http://www.abanet.org/buslaw/students/2011clerkship.doc.
In recent years, many areas of the legal profession have made
pursuing diversity a priority objective. Business law presents many
distinct diversity challenges, as law students are often unfamiliar
with the field and perceive it as conservative and unaccepting. This
realization is troubling, particularly for the American Bar
Association Business Law Section because its mission is:
To encourage diversity in the Section by
fostering a welcoming environment for all lawyers and promoting full
and equal participation by all lawyers, including lawyers of color,
women lawyers, gay and lesbian lawyers, and lawyers with
disabilities ("Diverse Lawyers").
To help address this problem, the Business Law Section has
created the Diversity Clerkship Program. This is a summer program
providing business law clerkship placements for qualified diverse
candidates who are first or second-year law students, and will
provide support and mentoring to the student participants in order
to give them the exposure to business practices that many of them
lack. In considering a student's diversity, the Section will give
special consideration to individuals who have overcome social or
economic disadvantages such as physical disability, financial
constraints or cultural impediments to becoming a law student.
The clerkship program will place up to nine students in business
court clerkships in the Philadelphia Commerce Court, the Delaware
Court of Chancery and the Price George's District Court in Upper
Marlboro, Maryland. Possible other placements include New York, NY
and Orlando, Florida.
The Business Law Section Diversity
Program will focus on judicial clerkships, where
diversity among judicial clerks remains disproportionately low. For
recent law school graduates, serving as a judicial law clerk is a
mark of distinction and honor that advances their future career
opportunities in law practice and academia, in government as
high-level appointees, and in securing appointments to the bench.
Clerkships in business law courts provide another unique and highly
important benefit to law students: the ability to see a microcosm of
business practice, and allow the student to become familiar with
business issues. Such a background will prove invaluable to a career
in business law, whether it be litigation or transactional work. It
is hoped that after a summer's experience in the business court
system, we will be able to assist participants in finding other
business law placements, in law firms or corporate law
The Business Law Section Diversity
Program encourages students to pursue business court
clerkship opportunities and to consider careers in the practice of
business law. The mission of the Program is to expose law students
to the practice of business law and to provide them with work
experience and foundations in business law that will further their
The objectives of the Program include:
- To encourage more diverse law students to
apply for clerkship positions.
- To foster relationships between business court
judges and diverse law students.
- To provide students with a foundation in
various aspects of business law.
- To provide opportunities for students to meet
a wide variety of lawyers who are active in the practice of
business law and are members of the Business Law Section.
- To establish a support system for diverse
students who are pursuing business court clerkship positions and a
possible career in business law.
Membership in the ABA and the Business
Law Section is required of students applying for the program.
Membership and can be obtained at the time
application. Business Law Section membership is free
to ABA law student members. Applications for the internships will be
solicited from all ABA accredited law schools, and a committee
within the Section will screen and interview the applicants, and
make the selection for summer placements. Judges will be asked to
participate in the program and to accept those candidates selected
by the internship selection committee. The Section will select up to
nine interns and will provide a summer stipend to each intern.
Additionally, during the course of the internship, there will be
networking opportunities designed to enhance the learning experience
for the interns and to strengthen their interest in business law.
