Adam Milani was a wonderful teacher of legal writing and also a well-known disability law scholar. After his death, the Adam A. Milani Disability Law Writing Competition was established to honor and advance his work. The competition is sponsored jointly by Mercer University School of Law and by the ABA Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law.
The competition is unusual because it allows for entry of briefs and office memos -- the kind of writing Adam taught. For papers written originally for a legal writing class, two papers can be submitted from among a professor's students from that semester.
Prizes will range from $300 to $500, depending on how many prizes are awarded. Submissions must be postmarked by June 15, 2006. Entry and eligibility information can be found on the Legal Writing Program page of Mercer's website, www.law.mercer.edu.
