The National Association of Women Lawyers has announced its annual student writing competition, which rewards original law student writing on issues concerning women and the law. Named for California lawyer Selma Moidel Smith, who was admitted to the bar in 1943, the competition invites submissions on issues “concerning women’s rights or the status of women in the law.” The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, and the winning paper will be published in the fall 2014 issue of NAWL's Women Lawyers Journal. Entries are due by May 1, 2014. Read more about the contest here.
