Hall’s winning entry, “Welcoming E-Wills into the Mainstream: The Digital Communication of Testamentary Intent” was honored as the best writing project by a student published in the Law Journal.

The Justice Elisa Cadish Award has been given since 2015 to a student who shows exceptionalism in topic choice, legal research, legal writing, editing, and collaboration with professors and colleagues.

Earlier winner, Brett Resh (2017), now serves as a law clerk to the Honorable Justice Kristina Pickering.

Justice Cadish honored Ms. Hall with a lunch attended by Justice Cadish, Ms. Hall, and Becky Crooker, who is the Editor in Chief of the Nevada Law Journal, and last year’s winner of the award.

“The exceptional writing of the law students at the Boyd School of Law continues to amaze me,” said Justice Cadish. “To take on such a complex subject, and build an argument, will serve Paige well in her career. I am proud to recognize her accomplishment.”

The award was named in honor of Justice Cadish by the student editors of the Nevada Law Journal and has been awarded ever since she was a Clark County District Court Judge.
