University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law student and CHHS Research Assistant Laura Merkey earned first place in a writing competition hosted by the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution (CSDR) and Missouri Law Review at the University of Missouri School of Law for her paper “Building Trust and Breaking Down the Wall: The Use of Restorative Justice to Repair Police-Community Relationships.”  The competition was held in conjunction with a symposium “Policing, Protesting, and Perceptions: A Critical Examination of the Events in Ferguson” in February 2015. Her paper will be printed in the Fall 2015 edition of the Missouri Law Review.

Merkey, who is also the 2015 Editor in Chief for the Maryland Law Review, has spent much of her time at CHHS working with police and first responders from international delegations participating in Senior Crisis Management Seminars.
