ACS sponsors two writing competitions

 The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy is sponsoring two upcoming writing competitions.

The 2015 Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law
The Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law is open to a wide array of participants. Practicing lawyers, policymakers, academics, and law students all are encouraged to take part. The judging committee will include federal judges and leading academics. A winner will be selected in both the lawyer and student categories. The author of the winning paper in each category will receive a cash prize of $1,500. The winning papers will receive special recognition at the ACS National Convention, on the ACS website, and potentially through other means agreed upon by the authors and ACS.
We encourage participants to view this topic broadly and welcome submissions on a variety of substantive areas.
Submissions must be emailed by Friday, February 6, 2015, 11:59pm EST. Papers emailed after this date will not be considered. Papers must be emailed to cudahy@acslaw.org in Word format.

The 2015 Constance Baker Motley National Student Writing Competition
ACS's National Student Writing Competition bears Constance Baker Motley's name in honor of her legacy as a civil rights leader, elected official, and the first African-American woman appointed to the federal bench. Papers will be judged on their effective use, analysis and/or expansion of legal scholarship. The judging committee will include federal judges and leading academics.
The student authors of the top three papers will receive special recognition at the ACS National Convention in the summer of 2015 and a cash prize for their work. The winner will be awarded $3,000 and each of the two runners-up will receive $1,000. The top paper will also receive an offer of publication in the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law. 
Examples of topics include but are not limited to: Civil legal aid, civil liberties, education, freedom of speech, LGBT rights, human rights, immigration, labor law, money in politics, privacy, racial equality, religion, the second amendment and voting.
The deadline to apply is February 13, 2015.
