Legal Writing Competitions

Many organizations throughout the country, and the world, sponsor writing competitions for law students.  The competitions typically focus on a particular area of the law.  Participating in a writing competition is a great way to explore an area of interest and to hone your writing skills.  As a bonus, the competitions often grant cash prizes, travel opportunities, or publication opportunities for the winning essays.  For more information feel free to contact Professor Rachel Smith ( or go directly to our database of competitions.
