Friends and colleagues,

Please share the following announcement with potentially interested students.

The ABA SEER's Public Land and Resources Writing Competition is now open for entries. Papers must demonstrate original thought on a question of legal and/or policy significance relating to the topic of the role of public lands and policy. The topic is not confined to any particular type of public lands issue. Submissions may advocate a position, educate the reader, or analyze one or more cases.

Seminar papers, notes, and comments are fine, so long as the work hasn't been previously published.  Applause, cash prizes, and publication opportunities await successful contestants!

More information is available here: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/environment_energy_resources/membership/law_student_resources/writing_competitions.html.  The rules are attached.
