Law Student Domestic Violence Writing Competition


Posted on December 12th, 2008 by Katherine Franke

Law students are invited to submit articles addressing domestic violence and the law from a national or international perspective.

The winner’s paper will be published in the American University Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law

All winners’ names and papers will also appear on the ABA Commission on Domestic Violence website.

The deadline is May 31, 2009, 5:00 p.m. EST via email at runger@staff.abanet.org. No exceptions. Winners will be notified in August 2009.

Submissions must further the legal needs of victims of domestic violence or domestic violence victims and their children, or advance efforts to address the incidence, causes and effects of intimate partner violence.

Submissions may be no longer than 7500 words (typically 20-25 pages), including footnotes and other text but excluding author identifying information, and must be double-spaced with one-inch margins. Any paper exceeding the 7500 word limit WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Students are free to submit papers of shorter length as we are most concerned with quality and originality.

Authors must be enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school at the date of their submission or must have graduated in December 2008 or later.

Submissions may not have been previously accepted for publication and, if they have been submitted elsewhere for publication, the first place winner must certify that the first publication of the article will be in the Journal of Gender, Social Policy & the Law.

  1. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have presented on your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.
