IT-Lex, a new technology law educational and literary not-for-profit, is seeking submissions for its inaugural writing competition, which opens today! Write about any issue within the areas of electronic discovery, privacy, social media, security, or wherever your technology interests lie. Your 10-15 journal page (approximately 5,000-7,500 word) papers will be read by a distinguished panel of articles editors, and the top three entries are guaranteed publication in the IT-Lex Journal, though other meritorious papers may also be published. Entries must be submitted online at our website (URL below) by February 1, 2013. Oh, and did we mention the cash prizes? First place will receive $5,000.00, second place $1,000.00 and third place $500.00. Plus, the winners will receive invitations to become Members of IT-Lex and to join the IT-Lex Law Review. Head over to http://www.it-lex.org, sign up to be our Friend - it's free - and check out the full rules and requirements at http://it-lex.org/writing-contest/. --- Additionally, if your law school has any faculty members who have an interest in technology law, kindly pass this email on to them, as we are looking for faculty advisors at each law school campus, to whom we can refer interested students to in order to discuss potential paper topics. We are also soliciting involvement from any faculty members that would like to be a part of our organization, and welcome any technology law scholars to contact us for more information about how to get involved. I will follow up with you within the next couple weeks to answer any questions, and also to discuss if you or your educational institution would like to be further involved with IT-Lex, perhaps through externships or the like for students interested in technology law. Please feel free to contact me as well with any questions, at email@example.com.
Sincerely, /s/ Samir Mathur
