The Georgetown Law Journal is proud to announce that the Volume 110 recipient of the Breonna Taylor Prize is Emily McWey, for her Note “From ‘Hearing’ to Listening: Access to Justice & Indirect Displacement.”
"With every accomplishment she achieves, she turns around and thinks of how to smooth the road for those behind her.”
The Georgetown Law Journal editor in chief Agnes Lee's activism for undocumented immigrants has continued throughout her time at Georgetown University. As an undergraduate, Lee stood out as a leader among students who opposed then-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson's invitation to be a graduation speaker and also delivered a TEDx talk which revealed her own undocumented status. Lee is believed to be the first openly undocumented student elected to lead a flagship journal at a top U.S. law school. At the Journal's helm, Lee is working to broaden and diversify the ranks of authors and student leaders.
