Prof. Alafair Burke Honored for Law-Related Fiction

Professor of Law Alafair S. Burke’s short story, “Winning,” has been selected for publication in “The Best American Mystery Stories of 2009.” The story, about a husband’s reaction to an assault against his wife and the wife’s attempts to protect her husband, was inspired by feminist legal theory about gendered responses to violence. It was previously published in “The Blue Religion,” an anthology edited by bestselling author Michael Connelly.
