Health Law Writing Competition

Epstein Becker Green is pleased to announce its 17th Annual Health Law Writing Competition. The competition is designed to encourage the preparation of scholarly papers on current topics of interest relating to health law. Cash prizes will be awarded as follows for the three best papers:

  • First Place: $4,000
  • Second Place: $2,000
  • Third Place: $500

Entrants should take advantage of the fact that health law is a very broad and diverse field, encompassing aspects of almost every area of law. Papers may address any traditional area of the law as applied to health care (e.g., antitrust, tax, corporate) or areas of law unique to health care (e.g., fraud and abuse, managed care, Medicare/Medicaid, clinical trials). Entries in the top 20 percent will be considered for publication in the Annals of Health Law, which is published by the Loyola University Chicago School of Law.

The submission period for the 17th Annual Health Law Writing Competition will open in December 2014. Papers will be due in January 2015.

If you have questions about the competition, please contact Serra Schlanger in Epstein Becker Green's Washington, DC, office at (202) 861-0900 or by e-mail at ebgcompetition@ebglaw.com.
