Author: Denise Wager


Three Notre Dame Law students recently placed first in the business schools category of the Arthur W. Page Society's 2020 Case Study Competition.

The team of Christina Beyer, 2L, Natasha Gunasekara, 2L, and Nicole Mastrocinque, 3L, won for their copyrighted case study, “Johnson & Johnson: A Crisis Over Baby Powder.”

Beyer, Gunasekara, and Mastrocinque enrolled in a corporate communication class in the fall 2019 semester through the Fanning Center for Business Communication in the Mendoza College of Business.

The students will share a cash prize of $2,500 and their names will be in the copyright statement of the case.  

Law students can take courses at the Fanning Center to get further instruction and guidance on writing, speaking, and other dimensions of human communication in business settings.

“We are exceptionally proud of these law students and delighted their names will be in the copyright statement on the cover sheet of the case and on the Page Society website for years to come,” said James O’Rourke, teaching professor of management in the Mendoza College of Business.

With this year’s award, Fanning Center students have won 22 case-writing prizes in the Page Society competition since 2002.
