A reminder has just been distributed for entries for the Louis Jackson Memorial National Law Student Writing Competition in Employment and Labor Law.

Entries are due on Tuesday, January 20, 2009. The competition is sponsored and funded by Jackson Lewis in memory of Louis Jackson, a founding partner of the firm, and is administered by the Institute for Law and the Workplace at Chicago-Kent College of Law. Entries are blind judged by a national panel of five labor/employment law professors. Neither Chicago-Kent nor Jackson Lewis have any say in evaluating the entries or selecting the winners. The author of the winning entry receives $3,000 and the two second place finishers receive $1,000 each.
