Have you ever wanted to have your article or paper published? Have you ever thought about entering a student writing contest? Do you know some contests have monetary prizes?

The Associate Dean for Intellectual Life and Director of Legal Writing, Research and Written Advocacy, invite you to the Student Scholarship Reception to celebrate Suffolk Law’s launch of a new writing portal on the Law School website (http://www.law.suffolk.edu/library/services/competitions/) that provides information on writing competitions, and a list of resources that can help students write papers for publication. The information is valuable to students who are just beginning a writing project and also to students who have written an excellent paper in a class that could be publishable. Students will also meet people who can help them with researching and writing articles.
