Ohio State law student takes 1st in AALA poster competition, teams to win Quiz Bowl

Ohio State’s Evin Bachelor (pictured) won the Student Poster Competition at the American Agricultural Law Association’s annual educational symposium in Louisville, Kentucky, in late October. His project, titled “Ohio: The Midwestern Ag Mediation Holdout,” discussed the potential for Ohio to become one of the last midwestern states to engage in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Mediation Program.

Bachelor is a third-year law student in Ohio State’s Moritz College of Law.

Also during the symposium, Bachelor and Devon Alexander of the Capital University Law School took top honors in the Student Quiz Bowl, a competition that requires law students to correctly answer questions about law, agriculture and agricultural law. Bachelor and Alexander joined forces with University of Houston law student Sara Luther to claim Ohio’s first-ever Quiz Bowl victory.

The students were able to attend the conference with the generous support of the Paul L. Wright Endowment in Agricultural Law at Ohio State.—Peggy Hall, OSU Extension
