Rising 3L Alyssa Bickford recently won a national award for the best student paper on international law and art. The competition was sponsored by Case Western’s School of Law and open to students throughout the country. Her paper discussed the conflicts that arise between families who have lost their paintings to Nazi looting and the museums who receive the paintings as donations. Alyssa’s award-winning paper focused on ways forward in such complex international disputes. As the winner of the best student paper, she received $500 and a trip to attend a conference on international law and art.
"Art and cultural law has stood out to me since my first year at OU Law as I studied several types of art and periods of history in pursuit of my undergraduate degree," said Bickford.
