DRI Law Student Diversity Scholarship

DRI is currently accepting applications for its Law Student Diversity Scholarship:

"DRI announces its annual Law Student Diversity Scholarship program open to incoming second and third-year African American, Hispanic, Asian, Pan Asian and Native American students. Incoming second and third-year female law students are also eligible, regardless of race or ethnicity."

The deadline is May 3, 2010, and applicants must submit an essay (no more than 1,000 words) on the following topic:

Did Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly and Ashcroft v. Iqbal really break new ground and sound a death knell for plaintiffs in federal civil litigation; and is the “anti-Twombly and Iqbal” Notice Pleading Restoration Act of 2009 introduced by Senator Specter to require the federal courts to follow traditional civil procedure rules for filing lawsuits really necessary?

More details available here.
