2016 Essay Question

The 2016 essay topic is as follows:

1. Assume the State you live in has a law that states the following:

“Family Code §1234.

(a) Custody may be granted to both parents jointly or to either parent solely. In making an order granting custody to either parent, the court shall consider, among other factors, which parent is more likely to allow the child frequent and continuing contact with the noncustodial parent and shall not prefer a parent as custodian because of that parent’s sex. The court, in its discretion, may require the parents to submit to the court a plan for the implementation of the custody order.

(b) This section establishes neither a preference nor a presumption for or against joint legal custody, joint physical custody, or sole custody, but allows the court and the family the widest discretion to choose a parenting plan that is in the best interest of the child.”

Further assume you have been asked to write a proposed change to Family Code §1234 that states in a child custody case (regardless of whether the parents are married), there is a rebuttable presumption that joint legal custody, joint physical custody and equal parenting time are in a child’s best interest. (the new law you write should be between 100-400 words)

a. Write the actual law (the way you believe it should read in the Family Code), the legal standard it would take to rebut the presumption (preponderance of the evidence or clear and convincing standard) and the factors that may be considered by the court when ruling on whether the presumption has been rebutted.

2. Write an explanation as to why you believe the law that you have drafted is better than the existing Family Code §1234 on the issues of child custody and visitation. This explanation will be used to advocate why your proposed, new Family Code §1234 should be adopted. (500-1000 words)

3. Write the opposition to the law you drafted (as if you didn’t draft the law) and explain why the current, existing Family Code §1234 should not be changed and why the change in the law, as proposed, is not in the children’s best interest. (500-1000 words)

THE SAMUEL KRUGLIAK LEGAL SCHOLARSHIP

In 2003 the Samuel Krugliak Legal Scholarship was established to honor the firm’s founder, Sam Krugliak who passed away in April of that year. During his lifetime, Mr. Krugliak played active roles in the legal community serving as the past president of the Stark County Bar Association and former chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Ohio Supreme Court. Giving back to the community and civic involvement continues to be an inherent aspect of the firm’s culture today. The Samuel Krugliak Legal Scholarship is awarded to law students on an annual basis.

Consideration will be given to applicants who

2) have shown an active commitment to their community;

3) display strong academic achievement;

4) reside or have formerly resided in Stark, Wayne, Carroll, Holmes, Summit, Tuscarawas, Columbiana, or Mahoning Counties (the "Stark County Region") when not attending law school, and
