The Ohio State Bar Association Section on Labor and Employment Law is pleased to announce the 2019 Student Writing Competition:

The Competition was created to encourage relevant and innovative scholarly works in the area of Labor and Employment, and to attract Ohio law students to the labor and employment law practice fields. A judging committee comprised of distinguished practicing attorneys and faculty members at Ohio ABA-accredited law schools will review the submissions and award first, second, and third-place cash prizes to the winning student-authors.  Law Students may submit any article that has not been published or accepted for publication in another forum. Articles published in the student’s home law school or law review journal are eligible to be entered (see rules for specific details).

The cash prizes for such competition has been established as follows:

First Place: $3,000; Second Place: $2,000; and Third Place: $1,000.

Funding for the Competition is sponsored by the Ohio State Bar Association Section on Labor and Employment Law—an energized community of over 1,300 lawyers representing employees, labor unions, and employers in Ohio.

Please share this opportunity with students who may be interested in participating. All current students at ABA-accredited law schools in Ohio are invited to submit entries, pursuant to the rules of the Competition detailed in the attached rules document. For all purposes of this Competition, Northern Kentucky University (NKU)-Chase is considered an Ohio law school.

Entries are being accepted until March 30, 2019.  You can find more information and the link to apply at:
