Finding an Environmental Law Topic Has Benefits

Filed under: Electronic Resources — Tags: , — uhlawlibrary @ 8:00 am

Check the Environmental Law  Institute’s writing contest for an environmental law topic.  Several topics are suggested on this site.  As an additional incentive, if you write something suitable for your class that would be suitable for this contest you could win a $2000 cash prize and an offer of publication in the Environmental Law Reporter.

Topic: Any topic addressing recent developments or trends in U.S. environmental law that have a significant constitutional or “federalism” component.

Eligibility: Students currently enrolled in law school (in the U.S. or abroad) are eligible, including students who will graduate in the spring or summer of 2010. Any relevant article, case comment, note, or essay may be submitted, including writing submitted for academic credit. Jointly authored pieces are eligible only if all authors are students and consent to submit. Previously published pieces, or pieces that are already slated for publication, are ineligible.

Deadline: Entries must be received no later than 5:00 PM ET on April 12, 2010.

View last year’s winning entry by Shawn LaTourette, Run Aground Again: The Exxon Valdez’s Collision With the Supreme Court’s Punitive Damages Jurisprudence at the Environmental Law Institute’s site (State Materials →Latest News & Analysis print issues).

The Law Library at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii makes this resource and many others available to faculty, students and staff of the Law School and to other patrons visiting the Law Library.
