2015 WRITING COMPETITION
The American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers is pleased to announce awards to be presented for
(a) the best book
(b) the best publishable article, book chapter, or substantial book review
(c) the best student note or comment
on a topic dealing with consumer financial services law.
The awards include cash payments of $2500, $2000, and $1000, respectively, a Certificate of Recognition from the College, and travel expenses to attend the Spring 2015 meeting of the College. In any given year, depending on submissions, all three awards, or fewer, may be made.
Eligible entries will address a topic on consumer financial services, but not securities regulation, insurance, or the safety-and-soundness aspects of banking regulation. Works on subjects within these (or other) areas, however, will be considered if they bear directly on consumer financial services.
Entries must have been written or published between November 15, 2013, and December 1, 2014. The deadline for submission is December 1, 2014. Unpublished entries should be typed, double spaced, and in law review format.
The winners will be honored at the annual meeting of the College held in conjunction with the Spring Meeting of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association, to be held in San Francisco in April 2015.
