2007 Law Student Writing Contest


Law students can win up to $2000 in the 2007 RPPT Student Writing Contest.

The first place winner will receive a cash prize of $2,000 (together with a one-year free membership in the Section and an expense-paid trip to the Section’s Fall Council Meeting in Minneapolis, MN in October 2007), with the second and third place winners receiving cash prizes of $500 and $250, respectively.


The contest is open to all law students currently attending an ABA-accredited law school. The contest is designed to encourage and reward law student writing on real estate and/or estate planning subjects of general and current interest.
