The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) Announces The 2013-14 Beveridge & Diamond Constitutional Environmental Law Writing Competition

The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) is pleased to announce the 2013-14 Beveridge & Diamond Constitutional Environmental Law Writing Competition.

Organized by ELI and the National Association of Environmental Law Societies (NAELS), this annual competition invites law students from across the country to submit papers exploring current issues of constitutional environmental law. Their goal is to inform the ongoing debate about the constitutional legitimacy of environmental laws and to recognize students who have advanced the state of scholarship through original analysis of cutting-edge topics. The winner receives a $2000 cash prize, public recognition, an offer of publication in ELI’s flagship journal, the Environmental Law Reporter (ELR), and a one-year individual membership to ELI.

Last year’s competition produced winner James E. Flynn III of GeorgiaStateUniversity. His article, “The Fraudulent Misrepresentation of Climate Science,” will appear in the December 2013 issue of ELR.

Submissions are due on April 7, 2014. For more about the competition and past winners, please visit the website.
