Admiralty Law PhotoThe 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!)
