THE WRITING CONTEST HAS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED.
THERE WILL BE ANOTHER CONTEST IN THE FALL – KEEP AN EYE ON THIS SITE AND OUR EMAIL BULLETIN FOR DETAILS.
The prizes? First place will receive $5,000.00 USD, second place $1,000.00 USD, and third place $500.00 USD- plus the prize-winners will be published in the IT-Lex Journal, and will receive invitations to become write-on Members and a part of the IT-Lex Law Review.
Prizes aside, all meritorious entries will be considered for publication, and we welcome all entries from qualified applicants.
The IT-Lex Law Review Articles Department evaluates all entries according to our submission evaluation rubric (“SER”), available here. While we make our SER public, unfortunately we cannot provide any individualized feedback or analysis to applicants on the score of their submission. We strongly advise that you download and review our SER prior to entering the writing competition, and any entries with a “3″ or lower in any category are automatically rejected.
All entries must be 10-15 journal pages (approximately 5,000-7,500 words including footnotes). Please format your entries with double-spaced body text and footnotes rather than endnotes, and provide your entry in Microsoft Word format. Citations must conform to the 19th edition of The Bluebook.
We will not accept entries that are published or under contract to be published in another journal. As a matter of policy, we consider entries already available on the Internet or through other alternative media outlets as published.
