Essay contest winner

KEVIN CREWS, a Stetson University second-year law student, won the Florida Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company’s Annual Florida Law Student Essay Contest. His essay, “E-filing from the Local Coffee Shop: A Practical Look into Confidentiality, Technology, and the Practice of Law,” was published in The Florida Bar Journal in June and he received a $750 cash prize. Honorable mention was awarded to Amber Scott, a first-year student from Barry University School of Law. Her submission is titled, “Best Practices to Protect Client Confidentiality with Professionalism When Working with Electronic Documents.” Scott’s essay will be published in the next edition of the General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Section’s publication, LINK, and she received $350. This year’s essay contest was co-sponsored by FLMIC, the GPSSFS, the Young Lawyers Division, and the Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism. From the left are William E.
