2016-17 Louis Jackson National Student Writing Competition in Employment and Labor Law
Co-sponsored by the Institute for Law and the Workplace and the Jackson Lewis Firm
Judges will consider papers on any topic relating to the law governing the workplace, such as employment law, labor law, employee benefits, or employment discrimination. Only the first two submissions per law school will be accepted as entries for consideration. Entries must be the law student author’s own work and must NOT be submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors must have completed or be currently taking course work in employment or labor law, and must be enrolled in an accredited law school during the fall 2016 semester. Judging will be blind, so the only identification that may appear on the first or subsequent pages of the paper is the paper title.
Entries must be suitable for publication in a law review. Citations must conform to current Bluebook style. Papers must not exceed 35 pages in length, 8½ by 11 inch, including footnotes, set in 12 point Times Roman font, footnotes in 10 points, with double spacing and one inch margins. For questions, contact Professor Martin H. Malin at firstname.lastname@example.org or the program associate, Sharon Wyatt-Jordan, at email@example.com.
One top honors award of $3,000 and two $1,000 awards will be presented to the top three entries. In addition to the cash awards, the top three entries will be published on the Institute for Law and the Workplace website. (Electronic versions of winning papers will be required.)
