IU McKinney Law Student Receives Thesis Award
Ryan Schwier, former staff member of the Ruth Lilly Law Library and first-year evening student at the IU McKinney School of Law, has been selected as the recipient of the 2012 Esther L. Kinsley Master Thesis Award. The annual award is open to nominations from each degree-granting program of the Indiana University Graduate School, and is presented to one student for a thesis of “truly outstanding” quality. The award will be presented at a reception hosted by the IU Graduate School in April 2013.
Schwier’s thesis examines the history of the Indian-settler legal relations in Indiana from the state’s pre-territorial period to the late 19th century. His thesis committee was chaired by Associate Professor of History Elizabeth Brand Monroe, ’02; Professor of History David J. Bodenhamer; and IU McKinney Law Professor Gerard N. Magliocca.
