Cordish Writing Award Competition Celebrates 10 Years

2016 marks the 10th year of the Annual Paul Cordish Writing Award Competition at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. To mark the occasion, The Cordish Companies, National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters, and Kramon & Graham recently hosted a luncheon for all previous award competition winners, NAPIA leadership, and the faculty and administration of the University of Maryland School of Law.

As general counsel to NAPIA for more than 50 years, Mr. Cordish was integral to the growth and development of the association and public adjusting. The classroom competition was created to spur legal research in the field of insurance adjusting by awarding a total of $10,000 to students who produce relevant papers on legal, ethical and regulatory matters related to the public insurance adjusting profession.

“This competition has done exactly what the Cordish family, NAPIA and its advocates intended,” said Brian Goodman, NAPIA Counsel and Kramon & Graham principal. “It has honored the memory of Paul Cordish by creating a body of learned papers on issues significant to the profession and association that I am proud to represent.”
