The International Law Students Association, in conjunction with the American Society of International Law (ASIL), is soliciting nominations for the Student Deak Award for articles published in the 2016 calendar year.
The Student Deak Award is a prize provided by Oxford University Press for the best international law student article in a student-edited law journal. The award honors Francis Deak, a WWII veteran who wrote extensively on international law. The award is the student equivalent of the prize separately awarded by the American Journal of International Law for the best article in the Journal.
Students, professors, practitioners or other persons in the legal community may nominate students for the Student Deak Award. A student may even nominate his or her own article. Per award rules, the nominee must have been a student at the time the article was written, and the article must have been published in a student-edited journal during the award year (2016). All nominations satisfying these criteria will be considered by the awards committee, who will choose the winning submission. The winner of the 2016 award will be announced at the 2017 ASIL Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in mid-April.
All nominations must include the student’s name, school, graduation year, full article (pdf), and article citation. The nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 12, 2017. Any questions about the award may also be directed to that email address.
