For the first time in the history of the NY State Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section’s annual writing competition for law students, this year all three prizes (the Stein Memorial Scholarships) have been won by law students at one law school–St. John’s.

Anthony Holesworth ’16 won first prize for his paper, “Student-Athletes or Athlete-Students? The Slippery Slope Presented by College Athletes as Employees;” Cynthia Vella ’16 won second prize for her paper “Student Athletes and the Public Sector: The NLRB’s Northwestern Decision and the Potential Effects on Public Universities;” and, Samantha Kimmel ’15 won third prize.

In addition, Sarah Mannix ’15 has won third prize in the Section’s Law Student Leadership category (the Sam Kaynard Memorial Scholarship).

In the past three years St John’s law students have won ten of the eighteen prizes awarded for Research papers and or Student Leadership service.

The winning students will be officially recognized at the NYSBA Labor and Employment Section lunch on Friday, January 30, 2015.

Again, congratulations to all.
