Health Law Writing Competition Rules

Epstein Becker Green is pleased to announce its 20th Annual Health Law Writing Competition. The competition is designed to encourage JD and LLM students in the preparation of scholarly papers on current topics of interest relating to health law. Cash prizes will be awarded as follows for the three best papers:

  • First Place: $4,000
  • Second Place: $2,000
  • Third Place: $500

Entrants should take advantage of the fact that health law is a very broad and diverse field, encompassing aspects of almost every area of law. Papers may address any traditional area of the law as applied to health care (e.g.,antitrust, tax, corporate) or areas of law unique to health care (e.g.,fraud and abuse, managed care, Medicare/Medicaid, clinical trials, telehealth/telemedicine). Entries ranked in the top 20 percent of all competition submissions will be considered for publication in the Annals of Health Law, which is published by the Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

The submission period for the 20th Annual Health Law Writing Competition closed on March 2, 2018. Please visit this page in December 2018 for details about the 21st Annual competition.

If you have questions about the competition, please contact Wenxi Li in Epstein Becker Green’s Washington, DC, office at 202-861-1831 or by e-mail at
