    Information on Past Emerging Scholar Award Recipients

    The Emerging Scholar Award is now in its sixth year. The inaugural winner, Professor Goldburn P. Maynard, Jr., is currently an Assistant Professor at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and notes that the Emerging Scholar Award helped him distinguish himself from other academic candidates. Last year’s winner, David Simson, is currently the Bernard A. and Lenore S. Greenberg Law Review Fellow at UCLA School of Law, where he is gaining teaching experience and publishing scholarship in preparation for the academic job market.

    Now is an optimal time to publish with the Denver Law Review. In recent years, we have featured works by distinguished scholars including Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Professors Catharine MacKinnon, Kathryn Abrams, Katherine Franke, Evan Lee, and Mark Tushnet. We are excited to honor talented new scholars and look forward to reviewing your submissions.
