ABA-TIPS Law Student Writing Competition: "The New Deal"

Here's a reminder about a writing competition sponsored by the American Bar Association Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (ABA-TIPS).  TIPS is celebrating its 80th Anniversary this year, so entries are asked to address any part of President Roosevelt's "New Deal," the series of economic programs implemented in 1933-36.  Papers can adress any aspect of that, to afford "the greatest degree of flexibility in writing."

Papers are due April 1, 2013.

First prize is $1,500 cash and airfare and hotel to the Annual Meeting in San Francisco.  (fun!)

Second prize is $500.  (not bad, and you also get recognition in the section magazine)

Third prize is an honorable mention.  (Still would be cool for your resume.)

Here's a link to the ABA-TIPS Page for the Task Force on Outreach to Law Students, which has more information about the writing competition.
