Lindsay A. Wilburn, a second year student at the University of South Carolina School of Law, was selected to serve as editor-in-chief of the ABA Real Property, Trust & Estate Law Journal. Previously a staff member of the Journal, Wilburn twice received the Golden Spade Award for excellence in editing.
“I am extremely honored to be given this opportunity and I really appreciate the confidence both the professors and my peers have in me,” Wilburn said. “I am excited about the coming year, and I look forward to building upon the great work already done by the board before us.”
Originally from Hilton Head, South Carolina, Wilburn attended Sewanee: The University of the South, where she majored in psychology and was co-captain of the varsity tennis team, vice president of the Psychology Club and fundraising chair for Theta Pi. She is a board member of the USC School of Law Pro Bono program, and she is a member of the Student Bar Association, the ABA Student Division and Women in Law.
Wilburn joined the Journal because of her interest in probate and real estate law and has enjoyed learning about all the hard work that goes into running a national journal. “All the moving parts, from the student-run board to the professional editorial board, are fascinating to me,” she said. As editor-in-chief, Wilburn plans to continue the strong legacy the Journal already has in place with the school, practitioners and members of the American Bar Association.
