In 2013, each 1L student wrote an appellate brief on one of the following issues: (1) whether disclosure of law enforcement booking photographs (mug shots) violated a particular state's Freedom of Information Act; or (2) whether civil forfeiture of an $80,000 Porsche after a small amount of marijuana was discovered in the vehicle violated the Eighth Amendment's prohibition against excessive fines.
