ABA JLEL Student Writing Competition
Laura Cooper (Minnesota) writes to tell us:
Labor and employment law professors and their students should take note of the new rules for the 2016 American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law and The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers Annual Law Student Writing Competition. The competition has doubled its award for the first-prize essay to $3000. The prize also, as before, brings with it the opportunity of publication in the ABA Journal of Labor & Employment Law that has tens of thousands of practicing attorneys as subscribers. Another change in the rules permits essays to be as long as thirty-five pages. Students may find it easier to prepare their spring semester seminar papers in the competition’s format now that the submission deadline has been set for June 15, 2016, well after the end of final exams.
