Walton ’18 Awarded Prize for Best Law Student Article

Beatrice Walton ’18 was awarded the Student Deák Award at the 112th Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law in Washington, D.C. in April. The Student Deák Award is a prize provided by Oxford University Press for the best international law student article in a student-edited law journal. The honor comes with a monetary award from Oxford University Press. The Deák Award honors Francis Deák, a WWII veteran who wrote extensively on international law.

Walton was awarded the prize for her note, “Duties Owed: Low-Intensity Cyber Attacks and Liability for Transboundary Torts in International Law.” This note was previously published in Volume 126 of the Yale Law Journal.
