The UMKC Law Review devotes part of one issue each year to a collection of “Law Stories” – short tales about various aspects of the legal world.   For the next edition, the theme will be One-L Revisited.  An introduction by Scott Turow, author of the classic account of the One-L experience, will lead off this collection of true stories about being a new law student.


We invite current law students and recent graduates (2006 or later) to submit stories.  Winning submission(s) will be published in the Spring 2010 issue of the UMKC Law Review, and the first place winner will receive a $500 prize.
