Grad student Nayha Acharya takes home top prize at 'Think Tank 2'

Last Friday, the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies hosted its second annual Think Tank Student Legal Research Workshop. This workshop represents a unique opportunity within Weldon for students to deliver public lectures on their scholarly pursuits, to receive expert feedback and commentary on their research from a professor, and to engage an audience in discussion on a current legal issue.  Those in attendance were treated to high-quality presentations from students at all levels (1-L through Grad) on a variety of legal topics.  

The Journal offers a prize for the top Think Tank presentation, as judged by our Editorial Board.  The winner receives $250 and an opportunity to publish in the upcoming volume of the DJLS.  This year's winner is Nayha Acharya, who presented "A New Approach for Applying Simple Probability Reasoning in Personal Injury Litigation".  Congratulations to Nayha! 

Because of its building success, Think Tank will continue to be an annual event, to take place early in Winter term with abstracts solicited late in the Fall term.  Keep your eyes open for future installments!

Thank you to the presenters, professors, and all who attended the event.
