Milani Writing Competition on Disability Law, Civil Rights, Family and Medical Leave, or Sexual Orientation
Mercer Law School and the American Bar Association host an annual legal writing competition in honor of Mercer's former legal writing professor, Adam A. Milani. The ABA website says that the First Prize will range between $300 and $500, depending on whether multiple awards are given, and possible publication in the Disability Rights Reporter. But the Mercer website says that the award is up to $1000, and that seems to be the correct information.
The submission may address any aspect of disability law, theory, or practice the contestant chooses. Other permissible topics include issues arising under any of the following statutes: Civil Rights Act of 1964; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; Age Discrimination in Employment Act; Family and Medical Leave Act; or any state statutes or municipal ordinances prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
The deadline for submission is Friday, June 9, 2017. Further information is available by clicking here.
