Today, my dean, Cynthia Nance, at the University of Arkansas School of Law, forwarded me the url to the American Bar Associations' many writing competitions. It's a good time to highlight this updated list of excellent competitions.
From the ABA's writing competition web site:
Did you know the ABA presents over 100 awards and distributes over $100,000 in awards and grants each year? Over 20 of these awards and grants have been specifically designed for law schools or law students, including writing competitions and fellowships. Don’t miss the opportunity to gain recognition for your accomplishments, that of your law school or student organization.Image: wikipedia, Van Gogh's irises
