Contest Information

The Center for Legal & Court Technology (CLCT) is excited to announce that this year’s Artificial Intelligence Writing Competition is now live! This popular competition is in its 5th year. CLCT looks forward to receiving the submissions, by the deadline of January 10, 2022.

All current law students* worldwide are cordially invited to submit one paper, which must:

  • Focus on at least one application of these technologies (e.g., Internet of Medical Things devices, facial recognition technology, autonomous systems, social media monitoring, etc.);
  • Explain whether regulation of the application is needed and to what extent; and
  • Propose means to regulate this application (proposals may range from traditional regulation to reliance on soft governance, and anything in between).

A submission is not required to put forward an original regulatory system; however, any novel, plausible and well-articulated proposals are likely to impress the judges.

  • 1st place: U.S. $2,500
  • 2nd place: U.S. $1,500
  • 3rd place: U.S. $1,000

The winners also have the unique opportunity of presenting their papers to a selected audience of executives from Cisco Systems, Inc.

We encourage students from diverse backgrounds to participate!
