Domestic and Sexual Violence

Submissions are now being accepted for the ABA Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence’s 14th Annual Law Student Writing Competition.

Law students are invited to submit articles addressing domestic and sexual violence and the law from a national or international perspective. Submissions should further the legal needs of victims of domestic and sexual violence or their children or advance efforts to address the incidence, causes and effects of intimate partner violence.

In addition to the quality of writing, papers will be judged on their integration of social science research, legal research, and subject matter expert research.
