Entries are now being accepted for the 2020 ABA Public Contract Law Journal Annual Writing Competition for law students, young lawyers, and LL.M graduates.
Through our writing competition, the PCL Section introduces itself to the next generation of public contract lawyers. In addition to cash awards, quality papers are considered for publication in the Public Contract Law Journal. Papers should address a topical issue of interest to the public contract and grant law community.
The competition will be conducted in two divisions. Each division will be judged separately, and separate prizes will be awarded to the winners of each division.
- Division I is open to candidates for a J.D. degree attending ABA-approved law schools within the United States and its possessions or have a J.D. degree in 2020 from an ABA-approved law school within the United States and its possessions.
- Division II is open to (a) lawyers under the age of 36 years or admitted to practice less than ﬁve years as of September 30, 2020, and (b) LL.M. students and recent LL.M graduates who attended law schools within the United States and its possessions and completed their LL.M. degrees after September 30, 2019.
Qualifying entrants must be members in good standing of the ABA and Section of Public Contract Law. Membership information, including reduced rates for current law students, may be obtained by contacting the ABA Service Center at 800.285.2221 or visiting ambar.org/pcjoin.
