Student Writing Competition in ADR

Here’s a great opportunity for current students- the annual Student Writing Competition in ADR organized by the Association for Conflict Resolution for Greater New York (ACR-GNY) and generously sponsored by the JAMS Foundation will be held once again this year.

This is a nationwide writing contest for Undergraduate students, Graduate students and Law students. The three first-prize winners (one for each category) will receive $500 and an invitation to present their paper at our annual conference at Cardozo Law School in June – a phenomenal networking opportunity. If you teach or know students who may be interested, please pass this along. The entry deadline is April 30, 2014.
