Third-year Syracuse University College of Law student Katherine A. Ritts wrote her way to national recognition and received the 2008 Scribes Law-Review Award. The annual award recognizes the best student-written note or comment in a law review or journal.
Her work — “The Constitutionality of ‘Let Them Rest in Peace’ Bills: Can Governments Say `Not Today, Fred’ to Demonstrations at Funeral Ceremonies?” 58 Syracuse L. Rev. 137 (2007) — was chosen over more than 70 other entries.
Ritts, a Syracuse resident, is a member of the Syracuse Law Review and serves on the publication as an executive editor. She is also a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Beta Kappa, president of the Justinian Honorary Law Society, and has been awarded Dean’s List recognition.
