Hogan/Smoger Access to Justice Essay Contest - $5,000 Award

Public Justice is holding its annual Hogan/Smoger Access to Justice Essay Contest.  This year’s topic is:  “Is Democracy for Sale?  Have Citizens United’s holdings run amok?  Legal challenges left to Super Pacs?  Can funding disclosure be required?”

The winner of the essay contest will receive $5,000, a free 2013 Public Justice Foundation Student Membership, and their essay will be featured on the Public Justice website and in the nationally disseminated Public Justice newsletter.  The contest is open to all law students that are currently enrolled in a U.S. accredited law school.  The intent-to-enter deadline is January 31, 2013, and the essay submission deadline is March 31, 2013.  Attached are the poster, intent-to-enter form, and contest rules and criteria.

On average, the Public Justice Foundation receives between 10 to 15 entries per year.  All Brandeis School of Law students should consider entering the contest!
