Five students will be selected to receive a paid registration ($275 value) to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims 12th Judicial Conference - a two-day conference to be held on Thursday, April 18 and Friday, April 19, 2013, at the Grand Hyatt Washington at Metro Center (1000 H Street NW, Washington, DC 20001). Winners will also receive free registration to the Bar Association's half-day component ($95 value) which will immediately follow in the afternoon on Friday, April 19.

Please note that any expenses incurred for travel to and lodging for the Judicial Conference will be the responsibility of the student.
