    Information on Past Emerging Scholar Award Recipients

    The Emerging Scholar Award is now in its fifth year. The inaugural winner, Professor Goldburn P. Maynard, Jr., is currently an Assistant Professor at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and notes that the Emerging Scholar Award helped him distinguish himself from other academic candidates. Last year’s winner, Daniela Abratt, is currently serving as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Robin S. Rosenbaum on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. After her clerkship, she plans to return to the civil rights field and hopes to enter academia. Two years ago, Adam Feldman, who recently completed a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California and has subsequently begun a postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia Law School, won the award. Adam has recent publications with other journals, including: Villanova Law Review, Marquette Law Review, Mississippi Law Journal, the Journal of Appellate Practice and Process, and the Journal of Law and Policy. His blog, Empirical SCOTUS, has also gained popularity among avid Supreme Court watchers. Adam credits winning the Emerging Scholar Award with extending his legal audience for his important empirical work. For more information on past winners of the Emerging Scholar Award, please review this page.

    Now is an optimal time to publish with the Denver Law Review. In recent years, we have featured works by distinguished scholars including Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Professors Catharine MacKinnon, Kathryn Abrams, Katherine Franke, Evan Lee, and Mark Tushnet. We are excited to honor talented new scholars and look forward to reviewing your submissions.
