Ninth Annual Employee Benefits Writing Competition
The American College of Employee Benefits Counsel is pleased to announce the Ninth Annual Employee Benefits Writing Competition. Any law and graduate (L.L.M. or S.J.D.) law students enrolled at a school between August 15, 2012 and August 15, 2013 are invited to submit a paper on any topic in the field of employee benefits law.
Papers should not exceed 40 pages (double-spaced, 12-point type, one-inch margins on all sides), not including footnotes. Footnotes should be single-spaced endnotes starting on a separate page. Papers must be submitted as email attachments to Peter Kelly. No information identifying the author or the author’s law school should be in the text, footnotes, or file name. That information and the author’s address, telephone number, and enrollment status should be provided in the email message.
Two prizes will be awarded: the Clarin M. Schwartz Memorial Award ($1,500 cash prize) and the Sidney M. Perlstadt Memorial Award ($1,500 cash prize). Winners will be honored during the College’s annual black tie dinner, and the authors of winning entries may have opportunities to have their works published.
Papers must be submitted by midnight Central Time on June 1, 2013.
