Congratulations to Christina Piecora, 2015 Recipient of the Justice Harold Birns Award
St. John’s University School of Law’s Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development would like to congratulate Christina Piecora, the 2015 recipient of the Justice Harold Birns Award, given at graduation to the student who publishes the best note in a student journal. This marks the second consecutive year in which a member of JCRED has earned this tremendous honor. Christina’s note, “Targeting the Vulnerable: Prison Sexual Assault – Our Constitutional and Moral to Protect Prisoners From This Cruel and Unusual Punishment,” had previously been awarded JCRED’s 2014 Best Note and will be published in the journal in the coming months.
Again, from the entire staff at JCRED, congratulations to Christina on your accomplishment!
