Mary Ann Norman Memorial Animal Law FellowshipThanks to the graciousness of the Norman Family, we are now offering the annual Mary Ann Norman Memorial Animal Law Fellowship for an individual to attend the annual MSBA Mid-Atlantic Animal Law Symposium. For Journal staff members, this responsibility is entirely aside from staff duties on the Journal. The Fellow will attend the Symposium and draft an article covering and analyzing the legal topics discussed at the Symposium as well as a first-hand "personal experience" article for the Symposium's website. The Fellow is awarded a $100 stipend which covers the cost of attending the Symposium ($10 for students), any related expenses, and the remainder as an honorarium for the work submitted to the Journal.
For Volume 1, 2012, our Fellow is Kathleen Kennedy, a 3L student at the University of Maryland School of Law.
