I'm sorry, but I can't take any piece seriously where a law professor doesn't have the guts to use her own name.

Did I miss what happened to the student or did the anonymous author not reveal it?

One reason that students commit plagiarism in their work is that lack of research skills. There are a lot of students do not know how to search the library catalogue or use other reference sources. Faculty can help students acquire these skills by working in conjunction with their library.
