The ABA Business Law Section is sponsoring its 27th annual Mendes Hershman Student Writing Contest to encourage and reward law student writings on a business law subject of general and current interest.
All winners will also be invited and subsidized to attend the Section Spring Meeting, April 4-6, 2013 in Washington, DC to receive their award at the Section Luncheon.
Papers will be judged on research and analysis, choice of topic, writing style, originality, and contribution to the current literature available on the topic. Papers submitted are normally 20-30 pages long, but should not exceed 100 pages of double-spaced typed text, including footnotes. Students need not be members of the Business Law Section to participate.
All entries must be submitted electronically on or before January 11, 2013. Click here to download a cover form to be included with your entry. For more information go to ambar.org/BLstudentwriting.
