The Yale Law Journal is excited to announce its second annual Student Essay Competition. The Competition is open to law students and recent graduates nationwide. Up to three winners will be awarded a $300 cash prize. Winning submissions will be published in the Yale Law Journal Forum, YLJ’s online component. All Forum Essays are fully searchable and available on LexisNexis and Westlaw, as well as on our website. Winning Essays from last year are available on our website.
Competition Topic: Emerging Issues in Health Law
The goal of this competition is for the next generation of legal scholars and practitioners to reflect on emerging legal problems and challenges. This year, submissions must focus on novel issues in health law, broadly conceived. Possible topics include, but are not limited to the following: bioethics, biotechnology, decriminalization of controlled substances, food law, global health, healthcare legislation, law and the opioid crisis, medical malpractice, and pharmaceutical regulation. We welcome topics in other related areas as well, and hope to receive both clinical and academic submissions.opportunity
