Each year, the Public Law Section of the State Bar section holds a competition for law students to write an article on a topic pertaining to public law. Articles are due on May 13, 2013. More details are contained in the attached flyer and are also available at http://publiclaw.calbar.ca.gov/PublicLaw/StudentWritingCompetition.aspx
The competition is a great opportunity for law students to get an article published in the Public Law Journal. The winner also receives a cash prize ($2000) and a trip to the annual state bar meeting and recognition at an awards reception, and it is a wonderful opportunity to meet California public law attorneys.
