TLR Volume 89 Editorial Board members Emily Kimmelman (Symposium/Note/Comment Editor) and Sam Lapin (Note/Comment Editor) have recently been recognized for their contributions to the fields of bankruptcy and tax law.

Emily has been designated by the American College of Bankruptcy (ACB) as the 2017 Distinguished Bankruptcy Law Student for the Third Circuit. She was nominated on the strength of her recently published Comment on the student loan discharge exception. As the Third Circuit Distinguished Law Student, she will attend ACB’s annual conference in Washington, D.C. this March.

Sam has been named runner-up in the prestigious Tannenwald Writing Competition sponsored by the Theodore Tannenwald, Jr. Foundation for Excellence in Tax Scholarship and The American College of Tax Counsel. His submission, Finding Propaganda: How to Stop Grassroots Lobbying Costs from Slipping through the Cracks of Section 162(e), examined the common business practice of deducting lobbying costs from taxable income. He is the first Temple student to place in the national competition. More about Sam and his paper can be found here.
