Andrew Herman Wins Human Rights Writing Competition

Mar 15, 2011

The Virginia Journal of International Law, in association with Virginia Law's Human Rights Program, is pleased to announce that Andrew Herman has been selected as the winner of the 2011 Human Rights Student Scholars Writing Competition.  Mr. Herman is a 2010 graduate of the New York University School of Law, and he is currently an associate in the New York office of Winston & Strawn LLP.  His paper, titled "Reassessing the Role of Supplier Codes of Conduct: Closing the Gap Between Aspirations and Reality," argues that supplier codes of conduct can be better aligned with their goal of improving labor conditions by taking a narrower approach and focusing on a single "linchpin" labor condition—a sufficient hourly wage.

We thank all entrants for their excellent submissions.  The deadlines for the Third Annual Human Rights Student Scholars Writing Competition will be announced in Fall 2011.
