Jake Andreasen '19 has been selected to receive the 2019 American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) Medal of Excellence.
Bankruptcy expert and professor Bob Lawless said, “Jake must have been exactly the sort of student American Bankruptcy Institute had in mind when it created the Medal of Excellence to award to a student at each law school to recognize outstanding achievement in bankruptcy studies both in and out of the classroom. Jake not only took but excelled across all of the bankruptcy courses offered by Professors Brubaker, Tabb, and me. He also did a lot outside the classroom. He worked for two of us as research assistants, served as president of the Bankruptcy Law Society, and ran the bankruptcy moot-court competition. It is hard to imagine a more deserving recipient.”
Andreasen is currently serving in a judicial clerkship for Judge Deborah L. Thorne of the Northern District of Illinois, U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
