As you finish grading your law students' end-of-the-semester papers, remember to nominate the best ones for the Milani Award.
Mercer University and the ABA host this annual writing competition in honor of Mercer’s former legal writing professor, Adam Milani. It is one of the few student competitions for briefs – not academic papers. The prizes can be as high as $1,000. And the students don't have to write anything extra.
Here are this year’s topics:
-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
