... to the Milani Award Competition. You can find all of the details here. The deadline is June 4th, only a couple of weeks away, and you know how even good students can get busy with their summer jobs and forget that last paper they wrote for your course. So tell them now!
Mercer's law school and the ABA host this annual writing competition in honor of the late Adam Milani, who was an excellent legal writing professor and great colleague. It is one of the few student competitions for briefs, not academic papers. And the prizes are as high as $1,000.
The briefs can be on any of these 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 Actr
-a state statute or municipal ordinance prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
