ABA Forum On The Construction Industry

2011 Law Student Writing Competition

On the heels of a successful 2010 Law Student Writing Competition, the Forum announces that the Competition will be repeated in 2011. The Competition is open to all law students in good standing and attending an ABA accredited law school in 2011.

Students may submit articles on any topic related to construction law. The format of the articles should resemble the articles published in either of the Forum's two publications, The Construction Lawyer (law journal format) and Under Construction (newsletter format with articles of 1000-2000 words).

Senior ABA Forum members will judge the submittals. Criteria for selection include creativity, clarity and precision of writing, strength of argument, novelty of subject, and quality of research.

Submissions from the Competition winner and finalists will be considered for publication in either The Construction Lawyer or Under Construction.

The author of the first place submittal will receive a cash prize of $2,000; travel expenses and registration to attend the 2012 annual meeting of the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry in Las Vegas Nevada, where a first prize plaque will be presented; a one-year membership in the Forum and recognition in the Forum newsletter, Under Construction, and on the Forum's website. One or more authors may be determined a finalist and recognized with a plaque.

The deadline for submission of articles for the 2011 competition is December 31, 2011. All articles shall be submitted to Amanda Raible, amanda.raible@americanbar.org and Marilyn Klinger, marilyn.klinger@sedgwicklaw.com in Word format.
