Davis Wright Tremaine International Law Writing Awards

Through the generosity of Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP a $2,000 stipend will be provided for the best student paper on an internatinal law topic submitted for the Davis Wright Tremaine International Law Writing Award, with a stipend of $500 for the second best student paper.

Papers must be submitted before no later than midnight on 18 April to be considered for this year’s award competition. Students should send submissions electronically (PDF) to Doreen Corwin (corwin@lclark.edu).

The guidelines for the award competition are:

  1. All Lewis & Clark students are eligible to enter the award competition.
  2. Entries are limited to original research papers written in the past year on any topic in private or public internatinal law, but not comparative law or the law of a foreign nation.
  3. The papers must be typed, double-spaced, with at least one inch margins, and with typing on only one side of each page. Identifying information must be limited to an optional cover page.
  4. The paper will be evaluated and judged by a selection committee consisting of faculty members nominated by the Dean and Mr. Ronald K. Ragen, or his designee, representing the sponsoring law firm. The decision of the selection committee will be final and non-reviewable.
  5. In selecting the winning papers, the committee will consider whether the papers are of publishable quality, with emphasis on the subject matter, organizations and writing quality.
  6. The judges will endeavor to have a final decision by commencement. If a prize recipient publishes a winning paper, the recipient should acknowledge in the published paper that the paper received a Lewis & Clark Law School Davis Wright Tremaine International Law Writing Award.
