Logan Cook '13 recently won the New York State Bar’s Elder and Special Needs Law Journal Diversity Writing Competition for her article "Domestic Abuse of the Elderly: Observations, Explanations and Recommendations."

Cook was recognized at the NYSBA Elder Law Section's Fall Meeting last month, and her article is included in the fall issue of the section's Elder and Special Needs Law Journal.

Open to all New York state law schools, the competition calls for articles on any legal issue affecting seniors or persons with disabilities, with a specific focus on historically underserved populations.

While at Albany Law, Cook spent a semester working in the Family Violence Litigation Clinic, and she also interned for the Chemung County Public Advocate's Office and the Office of New York State Assemblyman Thomas O'Mara.
