Lexington, VA Thursday, October 21, 2010


Aaron Sims '11L and Micah Jost '11L
On October 21, third-year law students Micah Jost and Aaron Sims presented their winning law review notes during the annual event recognizing the best student articles produced by Washington and Lee Law Review staff writers.

Each year, second-year law review staff writers are required to write an article on an issue of current interest in the law with the help of a faculty advisor and a member of the Law Review editorial board. Authors of the two best notes receive one of two awards along with a cash prize. The articles are presented at the Law Review Student Notes Program the following year and also are published in the Washington and Lee Law Review.

Jost, winner of the Roy L. Steinheimer Law Review Award, presented "Independent Contractors, Employees, and Entrepreneurialism under the National Labor Relations Act: A Worker-by-Worker Approach." Jost graduated from Goshen College and is a Senior Articles Editor for Volume 68 of the Law Review. Interim Dean Mark Grunewald served as faculty advisor in the preparation of this note.

Commenting on Jost's article were Jeffrey Hirsch, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Tennessee College of Law and David Millon, J.B. Stombock Professor of Law at Washington and Lee University School of Law.

Sims, winner of the Washington and Lee Law Council Law Review Award, presented "SIGTARP and the Executive-Legislative Clash: Confronting a Bowsher Issue with an Eye toward Preserving the Separation of Powers during Future Crisis Legislation." Sims graduated from George Wythe University and is a Managing Editor for Volume 68 of the Law Review. Professor Brian Murchison served as faculty advisor in the preparation of this note.

Commenting on Sims's article were Jonathan R. Siegel, Professor of Law and the Kahan Research Professor at the George Washington University School of Law, and Adam F. Scales, Associate Professor of Law at Washington and Lee University School of Law.

First published in 1939, the Washington and Lee Law Review presents articles contributed by leading scholars, judges and lawyers, as well as essays, book reviews and student notes. It is published quarterly by students of the W&L School of Law.
