    Tracy A. Brammeier, clerk at Clifford Law Offices and a second year law student at Loyola University School of Law, wrote an essay that was published by the American Bar Association Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) in 2012. Her essay, which focuses on the lack of rail security in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C.’s transit systems, won the 2012 TIPS essay competition on the topic of Disasters Caused by Foreign and Domestic Terrorism.
