The deadline for entries is Monday, October 15, 2012. 

The winning articles from the NLR 2012 Law Student Writing Competition will be published online in March. 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.
