2021-2022 Louis Jackson Memorial National Student Writing Competition in Employment and Labor Law
Co-Sponsored by Jackson Lewis P.C. and The Institute for Law and the Workplace at Chicago-Kent College of Law
Manuscripts are now being accepted for the 24th annual Louis Jackson Memorial National Student Writing Competition in Employment and Labor Law. The competition is supported by Jackson Lewis P.C. in honor of founding partner Louis Jackson and administered by the Institute for Law and the Workplace at Chicago-Kent College of Law. The top three winners receive scholarships: $3000 for the first-place winner, and $1000 each for the two second-place winners.
The competition is open to all current law students who submit a scholarly paper on a topic related to laws governing the workplace. Entries must be received by midnight on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. Judging is doubly anonymous and performed by a panel of law professors from across the country; neither Jackson Lewis nor Chicago-Kent is involved in that part of the process.
Papers must conform to current Bluebook style and not exceed 35 pages in length, double-spaced.
