The Cleveland Academy of Trial Attorneys has organized a law student writing competition with cash prizes! The first place winner will receive an award of $1,500.00 and the second place winner will receive an award of $1,000.00, along with the honor to add to your resume!

The topic this year is: the Seventh Amendment and the Ohio state constitution require that the right to a civil jury trial be “preserved” and “remain inviolate,” yet the number of civil jury trials is at an all-time low in our state. Is the right to civil jury trial still important in modern society? Why or why not?

The deadline is September 30.

More information and submission instructions are available here:
