The Admiralty and Maritime Law Committee of the American Bar Association Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) has announced its annual writing competition. The topic is a broad one: Recent Developments in Admiralty and Maritime Law. The winner gets: (1) $500; (2) another $500 toward attending the TIPS Spring Meeting in Washington, DC or the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco; and (3) possible publication in the Admiralty and Maritime Law Committee newsletter or other TIPS publication.
Current J.D. and LL.M. students are eligible. Entrants must be a member of the ABA Law Student Division at the time of entry. (They might also want to be a student member of TIPS, since it's free once you join the ABA as a student!)
Maximum length: 20 pages, double-spaced, 12 point Book Antiqua (or similar) font, with footnotes and Bluebook formatting. (It doesn't have to be 20 pages of course!)
Submit essays to James Koelzer at firstname.lastname@example.org on or before April 5, 2013. Include your ABA membership number with your submission. Please click here for the official rules and a complete description of the competition.
Hat tips to Erin Ruehrwein and Linda Wiley.
