Olivia Seo Wins ABA Student Writing Competition

Mason Law student Olivia Seo has won the top prize in the ABA Criminal Justice Section's 2013 William W. Greenhalgh Student Writing Competition.

Seo's entry, "Government Monitoring of Social Networks and the Reach of the Fourth Amendment," was selected for the award by a committee of practicing criminal law attorneys. 

In addition to earning a $2,000 cash prize, Seo's entry is eligible for publication in the Section's scholarly magazine, Criminal Justice, which is published quarterly for a national audience of criminal law practitioners, judges, and academics. 

Seo's award is to be presented at a Section meeting, to which Seo will receive airfare and accommodations. In addition, ABA's Criminal Justice Section will present the School of Law with a plaque to commemorate Seo's win. 

Seo, who just completed her second year of law school, is a graduate of the University of Virginia with a BA in Philosophy/Psychology.
