ABA Law Student Writing Competition of the ABA's Infrastructure and Regulated Industries Section

Dear Professor Hsu:
I am writing to you in the event that students at your law school might be interested in, or are currently involved with, writing projects that intersect with the subject matter covered by the ABA’s Infrastructure and Regulated Industries Section (formerly known as the Section of Public Utility, Communications and Transportation Law).  IRIS brings together members of the bar interested in the rapidly changing legal environment in the communications, cable TV, internet, electricity, gas, oil pipelines, aviation, motor carriers, railroads, and water industries.

I chair that Section’s annual K. William Kolbe Law Student Writing Competition.  This writing competition solicits submissions of essays by law students on topics relevant to our Section subject matter.  The award for the winner includes a $2,500 cash prize, a free membership in the Section for one year after admission to the bar, and airfare and hotel accommodations to attend the Section’s Fall Council Group meeting.  The complete rules of the writing competition are attached.  (Note that rules have not yet been updated to reflect the current name (IRIS) of the section, and the date on or after which submissions must be written will be June 1, 2016; and all submissions must be post-marked on or before June 30, 2017.)

I would appreciate any assistance you might be able to provide in identifying and notifying law students who might be interested in participating in this writing competition.

Best regards,
