Nebraska Governance & Technology Center Announces its First Annual Student Paper Competition: How Technology Regulates

The Nebraska Governance and Technology Center (NGTC), based in the Nebraska College of Law in collaboration with the Nebraska Colleges of Business and Engineering, is pleased to announce its first annual student paper competition. The prompt for papers is “how technology regulates.”

Technology regulates human conduct in many ways. Technologies can be designed to enable or prohibit certain types of activity directly. They may be used instrumentally to monitor or control activity. Digital platforms’ content moderation decisions have effects on our information economy and democratic policy. Changing technologies can support, undermine, or confound existing regulations and regulatory norms, for instance by decentralizing currency or eroding the distinction between longstanding categories such as employees and independent contractors.

This competition is for papers on topics such as these. We are particularly interested in papers that use a clear methodology to provide insight into underlying theories of technology and regulation. Preference will be given to papers written in a style suitable for essay-style law review publication (e.g., 6,000-10,000 words and properly footnoted). To be considered for publication, papers should be written in a style suitable to law reviews, including proper Bluebook citations.


This competition is open to anyone who was a law or other graduate student during the 2020-2021 academic year. Co-authored papers are welcomed. Papers co-authored with non- students where the student author was the primary author may be considered on a case-by- case basis.


Papers should be submitted as Word documents using the form available here.


Papers should be submitted prior to June 30, 2021.


$4,000 first prize, $2,000 second prize, $1,000 third prize.


Papers will be judged by the NGTC faculty with input from the NGTC academic advisory board and editors of the Nebraska Law Review.


Winning papers that meet the Law Review’s publication requirements will be considered for publication in the Nebraska Law Review.


Questions should be directed to Elsbeth Magilton, Executive Director of the Nebraska Governance and Technology Center.

The FCBA Foundation Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program application has re-opened! The extended deadline is Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 6:00pm ET!

The FCBA Foundation Law School Summer Internship Stipend:

For the 28th consecutive year, the Federal Communications Bar Association (FCBA) Foundation will award stipends to outstanding law students employed as unpaid summer interns, through the FCBA Foundation’s Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program.

The FCBA Foundation is actively looking to help students from around the country who want to dedicate their time and talent over the summer to government service in areas that relate to communications law, including broadcasting, cable, information technology, television, telephony, satellite, and wireless.  It also can include work at agencies and Congressional committees addressing other communications-related areas, including internet law and policy, privacy, cybersecurity, copyright, emerging technologies, and related policy and legal issues.

How much are the stipends?  The program provides stipends of up to $5,000.  In addition, the Foundation will select one outstanding intern among those chosen to receive an additional stipend for the summer: The Max Paglin Award. The Foundation considers funding from other sources in making award decisions and generally will adjust its stipend awards so that a recipient’s total funding for the internship will not exceed [$7,000].

Where can recipients work?  Over the years, stipends have been used by students to support work in diverse federal, state and local government agencies with a connection to the communications industry.  Examples of agencies where recipients can work include the FCC, FTC, NTIA, DOJ, DHS, NIST, and others.  Students can also work in Congress and in relevant parts of state and local government.

Where does the money come from?  The Law School Summer Internship Stipend Program awards stipends from its FCC Chairman Robert Emmet Lee Scholarship and Internship Fund, and last year provided support to 26 outstanding law students. FCBA individual and corporate members donate money to the FCBA Foundation to support these stipends.

Are there limitations on use of the funds?  Stipend recipients may be selected before they have finalized their summer plans, so the FCBA Foundation requires recipients to confirm in writing that they accept an unpaid internship at an eligible agency or government office.  Minimum requirements for internship duration and time commitment also apply. 

How to apply:  The application for the stipend will be available online until Tuesday, April 20, 2021, 6:00pm ET.  The application can be accessed here.

Questions:  If you have any questions about the Foundation Law School Summer Internship Stipend program or application, please contact Janeen Wynn.
