Law students tend to write their papers, comments, and notes on current legal topics pertaining to their course materials. With a lack of course coverage of reproductive rights and justice, students need an outside incentive to dedicate their time and attention to research and writing in this field of study. To incentivize and inspire student scholarship, LSRJ annually awards three student authors the Sarah Weddington Writing Prize for New Student Scholarship in Reproductive Rights Law.
2013 Sarah Weddington Writing Prize – Call for Submissions
Law Students for Reproductive Justice (LSRJ), in collaboration with the Center for Reproductive Rights, is seeking submissions for the eighth annual Sarah Weddington Writing Prize for New Student Scholarship in Reproductive Rights. The 1st place winning submission will have a presumption of publishability and will receive expedited review by New York University School of Law’s Review of Law and Social Change. Winning authors will receive cash prizes: $750 (1st place), $500 (2nd place), or $250 (3rd place).
This year’s theme is “Economic (in)Justice of Reproductive Regulation.”
