In December 2016, the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) announced its 2017 award for excellence in legal education. Among the winners was Professor Mila Sohoni, who won
the Section on Criminal Justice’s Junior Scholar Award for her article “Crackdowns,” published in Virginia Law Review.
“I’m delighted that my article received this recognition from the Criminal Justice Section. I have very much admired the scholarship that has won this award in the past, and it’s an honor to see my article added to that list,” Sohoni said.
“Crackdowns” also received the Honorable Mention in the 2017 AALS Scholarly Papers Competition.
