January 12, 2009, Alexandria, Va.— The American Bankruptcy Institute has launched http://papers.abi.org/ for law students looking to submit a paper for the First Annual ABI Bankruptcy Law Student Writing Competition. Students from participating law schools can currently submit an entry until March 15. The Web site allows students to create an account and track the status of their entry. All submissions must be reviewed by a law professor prior to submission, and the scope has been expanded to topics focusing on current issues regarding bankruptcy jurisdiction, bankruptcy litigation, or evidence issues related to bankruptcy cases or proceedings. For clarification, papers submitted focusing on the previous scope of (A) §363 sales or (B) plan confirmation will still be considered. Winners of the competition will be announced on May 1, 2009.

The first-place writer will receive $1,000 cash, publication of the paper in the ABI Journal and a one-year ABI membership. The second-place writer will receive a cash award of $750, publication of the paper in the ABI Bankruptcy Litigation Committee’s quarterly newsletter and a one-year ABI membership. The third-place writer will receive a cash award of $500, publication of the paper in the ABI Bankruptcy Litigation Committee’s quarterly newsletter and a one-year ABI membership. For more information, please contact papers@abiworld.org.
