Adam Milani was a well-known legal writing professor, and also an expert in disability law, who passed away way too young. To remember Adam, Mercer University School of Law annually hosts the Milani Award, for the best briefs on topics of substantive law that were of great interest to Adam.
It’s time to start thinking about inviting your students to compete for the Milani Award this year. It is one of the few student competitions for briefs – not academic papers. Prizes can be as high as $1,000.
This year’s topics are:
-the Civil Rights Act of 1964,
-Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972,
-the Age Discrimination in Employment Act,
-the Family and Medical Leave Act, or
-a state statute or municipal ordinance prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
The deadline for submission is June 1, 2011. Further information is posted on the Mercer website at http://www.law.mercer.edu/academics/legalwriting/milani.
