UFLaw students won first, second and third place in the recent Dean Frank E. Maloney Writing Contest sponsored by The Florida Bar Environmental and Land Use Law Section. Kevin Regan (3L) placed first with “Protecting Florida’s Rare Plants From Extinction: The Need For A Comprehensive Approach.” Second place was awarded to Miguel Collazo III (3L) for “When Two Worlds Collide: Solving The Puzzle Of Interjurisdictional Land Use Conflicts.” Amanda Bagni (JD 01) took third with “Water- Efficient Landscaping In Florida: The Role For Courts And Local Governments.” “For Florida students to do so well in the competition is a tribute to former Dean Frank Maloney’s legacy and the strength of our environmental and land use law program,” said Richard Hamman. The contest rewards and encourages student scholarship in environmental and land use law, and is named in honor of Maloney, whose teaching and support of Florida Water Law at UF helped many of Florida’s leading practitioners become excellent researchers and writers.
