Southwestern Law School’s Legal Fiction Contest

Southwestern Law SchoolSouthwestern Law School is accepting submissions of original short works of fiction, and winning entries will be published in a future issue of the Journal of Legal Education.

The contest is open to lawyers and non-lawyers, academics and non-academics – anyone setting a fictitious story in a legal setting (law school, law firm, courtroom, legislature, judge’s chambers, etc.) or focusing on a law-related character (lawyer, law professor, judicial clerk, etc.).  All submissions must be original and previously unpublished works of short fiction related to law school or the practice of law. Submissions must be no more than 5,000 words (approximately 20 double-spaced pages).

There is no entry fee and no monetary prize; the winning stories will be published in the Journal of Legal Education: The Fiction Issue in early 2013. Additionally, the winning entries and ten runner-up entries will be posted on the JLE website. Authors will retain copyright ownership.

Submissions must be received by 6:00 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, Thursday, March 15, 2012.
