Tulane Law Review Member Wins Burton Award for Distinguished Legal Writing

Annalisa Cravens, Senior Articles Editor of the Tulane Law Review, was recently selected for a Burton Award for Distinguished Legal Writing. Cravens' winning piece, "This Is Not the System Congress Created": Rethinking Louisiana's Immigration Law After Arizona v. Unites States, was published in Issue 1 of Volume 88. The piece argues that Louisiana's Prevention of Terrorism on the Highways Act, which makes it a felony to drive while in the United States illegally, is an improper state foray into immigration regulation.

Cravens, along with the other 14 students chosen for the award, will be honored on June 9 at the Library of Congress.
