The good folks at Law & Inquiry asked if we would publicize its 2014 Graduate Student Paper Competition; we are delighted to do so. Further information for those interested can be found here (and here). Please note that the submission deadline is March 1, 2014. A brief description of the competition follows.
"Each year, Law & Social Inquiry invites submissions from graduate and law students for its Graduate Student Paper Competition. The GSPC offers students within the field of sociolegal studies a great opportunity to showcase their journal-length work to an expanded audience. The winning paper is published in Law & Social Inquiry, and the winner receives special recognition from LSI at the Annual Meeting of the Law and Society Association. Winners are also honored with a $500 cash prize for their achievement."
