Law Students: Submit Your Paper To The 2009 LCCHP Student Writing Competition in Cultural Heritage Law

Law students interested in submitting a paper for the 2009 Student Writing Competition in Cultural Heritage Law can access the submission form and competition details on the LCCHP Education Committee's writing competition page.  Faculty members may also access the form to nominate a student paper for consideration.  The window for submission closes on June 12, 2009. 

Suitable topics for analysis include cultural property, art law, historic preservation, indigenous cultures and intangible heritage (but not intellectual property except as it relates to intangible indigenous heritage).  Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Andrews Kurth, LLP, the first-place paper will receive $1,000 and the second-place paper $500.  In addition, the winning papers may be offered publication in the Yearbook of Cultural Property Law or on the LCCHP web site.
