The American Bankruptcy Institute is Pleased to Announce the Eighth Annual Bankruptcy Law Student Writing Competition!

The American Bankruptcy Institute is pleased to announce the Eighth Annual Bankruptcy Law Student Writing Competition. The competition allows law students to submit papers for the chance to be published in ABI’s monthly magazine, the ABI Journal (read by more than 13,000 professionals monthly) or one of ABI’s committee newsletters, in addition to $4,000 in cash prizes. This year, we will provide one-year ABI memberships to all students who participate.

The paper may address business or consumer cases and may include matters such as bankruptcy sales, plan confirmation and other topics that involve jurisdiction, litigation or evidence in the bankruptcy courts. Previous winning topics include voting rights in inter-creditor agreements, the vacant class of creditors, and loss mitigation in bankruptcy.

Papers are being accepted now through March 1, 2016. Further details about the competition, including previous winners and participating schools, can be found online.

In addition to this annual competition, the ABI is a valuable year-round resource for bankruptcy research and information for hundreds of bankruptcy professors and their students. Membership is only $95/year ($20 for students). If you would like to learn more about ABI and the value of membership, please visit the homepage.
