Marquee law firm Foley & Lardner and techlaw-news website IT-Lex is sponsoring a writing contest for law students which would, as I read it, welcome papers about blog law. Here’s the deets:
THE FOLEY & LARDNER / IT-LEX TECHNOLOGY LAW WRITING CONTEST
CASH PRIZES AND MORE!
IT-Lex, a technology law educational and literary not-for-profit, is
seeking submissions for its inaugural writing competition, sponsored
by the law firm of Foley & Lardner! Write about any issue within the
areas of electronic discovery, privacy, social media, security, or wherever
your technology interests lie. Your 10-15 journal page (approximately
5,000-7,500 word) papers will be read by a distinguished panel of
articles editors, and the top three entries are guaranteed publication
in the IT-Lex Journal, though other meritorious papers may also be
published. Entries must be submitted online at our website (URL
below) by May 1, 2013.
Oh, and did we mention the cash prizes? First place will receive
$5,000.00, second place $1,000.00 and third place $500.00. Plus, the
winners will receive invitations to become Members of IT-Lex and to
