2021 HOWARD C. SCHWAB MEMORIAL ESSAY CONTEST
SECTION OF FAMILY LAW
Each year, the American Bar Association Section of Family Law conducts an essay contest to encourage law students to think about current issues in family law, and to encourage participation in the Section of Family Law. Students may write on any aspect of family law. The contest is open to second and third-year full-time J.D. students (and second through fourth-year part-time J.D. students) of all ABA-approved law schools, and to first year J.D. students where family law is taught as part of the first year curriculum.
Please bring this essay contest to the attention of your family and juvenile law professors so that they might encourage your law students to participate.
Winning entries receive the following: Monetary prize, certificate of recognition, consideration of essay’s publication in Family Law Quarterly and on the Section website, and letter to law school dean regarding the achievement. To enter, one must submit an entry form by April 9, 2021. Essays are due April 23, 2021.
