Sixth Annual Bankruptcy Law Student Writing Competition

10.17.13

The American Bankruptcy Institute is pleased to announce the Sixth Annual Bankruptcy Law Student Writing Competition. The competition allows law students to submit papers for the chance to be published in ABI’s 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 total cash prizes.

Please note that ABI does not require a law professor to approve papers prior to submission AND all students who participate will receive a one-year ABI membership.

ABI invites papers on current issues regarding bankruptcy jurisdiction, bankruptcy litigation, or evidence in bankruptcy cases or proceedings. 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 intercreditor agreements, the vacant class of creditors, and loss mitigation in bankruptcy.

Further details about the competition, including previous winners and participating schools, can be found at papers.abi.org.

Papers are being accepted now through March 3, 2014. Please encourage your students to take advantage of this opportunity.

If you have any questions about this year’s competition, please contact Chris Thackston, ABI Membership Director, at (703) 739-0800 or cthackston@abi.org.
