The Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law

The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy has announced its sixth annual Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law. Judge Cudahy’s work in these areas combines a keen grasp of legal doctrine, deep insight into the institutional forces that determine how doctrine is implemented, and an appreciation of the public impact of doctrinal and institutional choices, including the consequences for fundamental values such as fairness, participation, and transparency. This competition seeks to encourage and reward these qualities in the scholarship of others.  A winner will be selected in both the lawyer and student categories. The author of the winning paper in each category will receive a cash prize of $1,500. The winning papers will receive special recognition at the ACS National Convention, on the ACS website, and potentially through other means agreed upon by the authors and ACS.

Participants are encouraged to view this topic broadly and submissions on a variety of substantive areas are welcome.  The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2013.  For more details, go here.
