Writing Competitions for Students

A number of organizations sponsor writing competitions that are open to law students.  Many of these competitions have cash prizes ranging from $5,000 to $500, and may also include a funded trip to a meeting to receive the prize.  Be sure to check the Writing Competitions bulletin board outside Room 275.  There are over 15 writing competitions posted, with topics ranging from labor and employment law, international business, and international humanitarian law, to factory farms, energy law, and tax law.  You are also encouraged to visit the Student Life page to see a list of additional writing competitions.  http://www.law.louisville.edu/node/7044
