Released: Feb. 2, 2006
MILWAUKEE – Second-year Marquette Law student Caz McChrystal has earned a seat at the GRAMMY awards in Los Angeles next week.
McChrystal was named a finalist in the Eighth Annual GRAMMY Foundation Entertainment Law Initiative Writing Contest. His paper, "The Dissonant Tune of International Harmonization," which was written as part of his International Intellectual Property class, earned him a $1,500 scholarship, a trip to Los Angeles to attend the Grammy award ceremony on February 8, and an invitation to the GRAMMY Entertainment Law Initiative luncheon held earlier that day. McChrystal also has an offer to publish his paper in the Cardozo Arts and Entertainment Law Journal.
“Caz demonstrated a very deep understanding of the law and the critical thinking skills of a future Marquette lawyer in his paper,” said Irene Calboli, assistant professor of law, who taught McChrystal International Intellectual Property during the fall semester of 2005.
McChrystal is a native of Shorewood, Wis., and plans to pursue a career in entertainment law.
