The National Law Review 2011 Law Student Writing Competition

Submission Deadline October 17th! 

NLR November 2011 Suggested Topics: Intellectual Property law, Tax Law and Labor & Employment Law.  

This is a reminder that submissions are now being accepted for consideration for publication in the November issue of the National Law Review (NLR)

Please note that although students are encouraged to submit articles addressing Health & Labor Law they may also submit entries covering current issues related to other areas of the law. The deadline for entries is Monday, October 17th.   The winning articles from this month’s NLR 2011 Law Student Writing Competition will be published online in November 2011. The top article(s) chosen will be featured on the NLR home page.  Up to 5 runner-up articles may also be posted in the NLR searchable database. 

Why Students Should Submit Articles:

  • Students have the opportunity to publicly display their legal knowledge and skills.
  • The student’s photo, biography and contact information will be posted with each article, allowing for professional recognition and exposure.
  • Winning articles are published alongside those written by respected attorneys from Am Law 200 and other prominent firms as well as from other respected professional associations.
  • Now more than ever, business development skills are expected from law firm associates earlier in their careers. NLR wants to give law students valuable experience generating consumer-friendly legal content of the sort which is included for publication in law firm client newsletters, law firm blogs, bar association journals and trade association publications.  

Student postings will remain in the NLR online database for up to two years, easily accessed by potential employers. In addition, each winning entry will be accompanied by the student’s law school logo and contact information, a branding opportunity for your school.
