A round of applause.

Maurice A. Deane School of Law Professor Ashira Pelman Ostrow has been named one of two winners of Hofstra University’s 2012-2013 Lawrence A. Stessin Prize for Outstanding Scholarly Publication.

Ostrow, an associate professor at Hofstra Law, will receive the prize for her article “Land Law Federalism,” which was published in the Emory Law Journal, Vol. 61 (2012), pp. 1397-1444.
