Student/Young Lawyer Essay Contest on Legal Ethics: ABA Prize of $5000

Law students and young lawyers are eligible to compete for a $5000 prize and an April trip to D.C. for the prize ceremony.  It's the ABA's 2007 Bert W. Levit Essay Contest, mean to generate interest in professional liability issues among students and young lawyers (who have joined the ABA by 2/14/07 [ignore flyers that suggest the join deadline was 2/06 -- it's really 2007, I checked]).  The essay is based on a provided Hypo, and this year's theme is aiding and abetting a client's breach of fiduciary duty.  Deadline:  Feb. 16, 2007.  See the Hypo, rules, and details at this link.  [Alan Childress]
