Writing Competitions

Each year, St. John's law students excel in writing competitions. There are competitions on virtually every topic: from administrative law to religious freedom, from labor law to women’s rights, from intellectual property to gun control. Some offer cash prizes (as much as $10,000) and others publish the winning papers. No matter what the prize, winning a writing competition is a great way to hone your writing skills, explore a new area of law, and enhance your resume.

The Law School's Writing Center compiles, organizes and updates a list of current writing competitions. In order to access this list, students must sign up for the Writing Center's TWEN site. Those students already enrolled on TWEN can view the list via the Writing Competitions tab on TWEN.

If you have any questions regarding competitions, feel free to stop by the Writing Center or email us at sju.writing@gmail.com.
