“Each year I cannot fully express how much I appreciate these generous colleagues for their time and energy to help Mercer Law honor Adam’s memory,” said Mercer Law Professor Suzianne Painter-Thorne. “This is especially true this year when, in addition to a pandemic, we are all reconciling our regular commitments, switching to online classes, and facing many other challenges. Without your generosity and support, we would not be able to host this competition. “
