The LCCHP (Lawyers’ Committee for Cultural Heritage Preservation has announced a student writing competition! I considered pretending to be a student just so I could enter, but then realized I’m a little busy these days to be defrauding people. So, here are the details from the LCCHP website:
- Suitable papers may address any aspect of cultural heritage law, including art, cultural property, historic preservation, indigenous peoples, and intangible heritage (but not intellectual property, except as it relates to indigenous peoples or intangible heritage).
- Selection criteria focus on the ability of the author to present a critical analysis of a current issue and to propose solutions.
- Each submitted paper must be supported by a law school faculty member, follow law review article style and formatting, and be submitted electronically by the deadline.
- Two prizes will be awarded: a first-place prize of $1000 and a second-place prize of $500.
- The winning papers may be offered publication in the Yearbook of Cultural Property Law.
- The deadline for 2010 submissions is June 11.
Cool, huh? Well, good luck!
