Taylor Owings

Taylor Owings ’13 won the 2013 Gellhorn-Sargentich Law Student Essay Competition, which is sponsored by the American Bar Association’s Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice. The award recognizes students who write on administrative law topics. Owings’ winning entry, “Identifying a Maverick: When Antitrust Law Should Protect a Low-Cost Competitor,” her Vanderbilt Law Review Note, was published in the January 2013 edition. “Taylor gave a terrific presentation that included a shout-out to Vanderbilt and our Regulatory State course,” Associate Dean for Research Kevin Stack said. Owings received her award at the Administrative Law Section’s annual meeting during the same ceremony at which Stack received ABA’s 2013 Annual Scholarship Award for the best published work in administrative law. He was honored for his article, “Interpreting Regulations” (11 Michigan Law Review, 2012). Owings is clerking for Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals this year.
