This year’s American Indian Law Review national writing competition is now welcoming papers from students at accredited law schools in the United States and Canada. Papers will be accepted on any legal issue specifically concerning American Indians or other indigenous peoples. Three cash prizes will be awarded: $1,500 for first place, $750 for second place, and $400 for third place. Each of the three winning authors will also be awarded an eBook copy of Cohen’s Handbook of Federal Indian Law, provided by LexisNexis.
The deadline for entries is Tuesday, February 28, 2023, at 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Sponsored by the University of Oklahoma College of Law, the American Indian Law Review has proudly served Native and legal communities since 1973. Each year at this time we encourage law students nationwide to participate in this, the longest-running competition of its kind. Papers will be judged by a panel of Indian law scholars and by the editors of the Review.
