With stakes this high, the competition will no doubt be tough, but I know you are up to it. The Judge John R. Brown Scholarship Foundation is holding a legal writing competition for law students. There is no limit on subject matter, so animal law is clearly on the agenda. The prize? $10,000!! With stakes like that, it’s obviously worth a shot. And even if you don’t win, you will have turned out a great paper that you can probably use somewhere, and educated a few of the judges along the way.
