KATE STONEMAN DAY 25TH ANNIVERSARY
Katheryn D. Katz Award
Sponsored by Kate Stoneman Honorary Committee Members
Elizabeth Katz Toohey and Amy J. Kellogg, Class of 2002
Award is Presented to an Albany Law School Student
Submission Deadline: Wednesday, April 10, 2019
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Kate Stoneman Day, a $500 award will be presented to a current Albany Law School student who submits a project on the topic of “The Legacy of Kate Stoneman.” The project can be in the form of an essay, mixed media project, movie, poem, law article or other format as determined by the applicant.
The project must explore the answer to the following questions: “How has the legacy of Kate Stoneman—and her accomplishments in the legal profession—expanded opportunities for women in the practice of law? What would Kate Stoneman be fighting for today?”
Note: if the student is using an existing law school paper from the last two academic years, these questions may be augmented onto the paper in a separate section.
The project may be in any format selected by the applicant. Written submissions should be limited to no more than 2,500 words and any digital submissions should be limited to 5 minutes.
The project must be the original work of the student.
The project can be done by an individual or a group, but the award is $500 total, not per person.
The project must answer the two questions outlined above.
