Legal Competition

The Symposium on Sovereignty has established itself as the most important meeting place for the exchange of legal and scientific discussions on and relating to Amerindian law. This competition is open to articles written while the author is a student at an accredited law school in the United States. PhD students at the Faculty of Law (LL.M. candidates) are not eligible. Contributions must address aspects of public or private sector labor law and/or labor law relevant to the U.S. Chamber of Labor and Employment. Students are encouraged to discuss a public policy issue, the practical implications of a case or doctrine of principle, a statute, or the need for legal change or common law doctrine. Articles may deal with U.S. law, international law relevant to U.S. labor and employment lawyers, or dealing with a legal issue in states across the country. Documents limited to the law of a single state will not be considered. The work must be analytical in nature and not simply a summary of the law. Students should present and discuss competing points of view in relation to the topic at hand and distinguish their conclusions from opposing positions with sound logic and reference to multiple primary and secondary sources.

We discourage students from writing about a recent Supreme Court decision or a case pending before the Supreme Court, unless the article focuses on jurisprudence or legal developments following the Supreme Court decision. Submissions are usually due by mid-June. Each year, Transnational Law & Contemporary Problems organizes an annual student writing contest in partnership with the International and Comparative Law Program at the University of Iowa School of Law.

Submissions must generally be submitted in early September. Law students are invited to submit papers dealing with domestic and sexual violence and the law from a national or international perspective.

Milani – a passionate disability rights activist and accomplished academic – was known for his publication of numerous books and how-to articles in the field of disability discrimination. He has taught legal writing as well as disability discrimination law and has always encouraged his students to become prolific and outstanding writers. The objective of the competition is to generate interest and understanding in the field of disability law and to promote excellent legal writing skills among law students.

The competition is open to all students attending law school in the United States. Full-time students who are not law students but who are writing legal articles as part of a course at a U.S. law school are also eligible. Employees of Mercer University`s Faculty of Law (excluding students working less than 20 hours per week) are excluded from entering the competition. Submissions are usually due by mid-June. After Mill, there was a shift in economic theory that emphasized a more precise and theoretical competitive model. A simple neoclassical model of free markets holds that the production and distribution of goods and services in competitive free markets maximizes social welfare. This model assumes that new firms can freely enter markets and compete with existing firms, or to use legal language, there are no barriers to entry. By this term, economists mean something very specific, namely that competitive free markets provide allocative, productive and dynamic efficiency. Allocative efficiency is also called Pareto efficiency after the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto and means that the resources of an economy go in the long run exactly to those who are willing and able to pay for them. Since rational producers will continue to produce and sell, and buyers will buy to the last limit of possible production – or else rational producers will reduce their production to the margin at which buyers will buy the same quantity as that produced – there is no waste, the greatest number of desires of the greatest number of people will be satisfied, and utility will be perfected, Because resources can no longer be redistributed to make someone better. without putting someone else in a worse situation; The company has achieved allocation efficiency.

Production efficiency simply means that society does everything possible. Free markets are meant to reward those who work hard, and therefore those who put society`s resources at the limit of their potential output. [61] Dynamic efficiency refers to the idea that businesses that are constantly competing must research, create and innovate in order to maintain their share of consumers. This goes back to Austro-American political scientist Joseph Schumpeter`s idea that an “eternal storm of creative destruction” is sweeping capitalist economies and leaving business at the mercy of the market. [62] This led Schumpeter to argue that monopolies did not need to be broken up (as in the case of Standard Oil) because the next storm of economic innovation would do the same. Additional resources: Suffolk University Law School has created a comprehensive list of law writing competitions. In many developing countries in Asia, including India, competition law is seen as a tool for stimulating economic growth. In Korea and Japan, competition laws prevent certain forms of conglomerates. In addition, competition law has promoted fairness in China and Indonesia, as well as international integration in Vietnam. [1] The Hong Kong Competition Regulations entered into force in 2015. [43] This writing contest is made possible by an initial generous donation to the Delaware Bar Foundation by Barbara Stargatt and her family in memory of her late husband, Bruce M. Stargatt.

Bruce was a respected Delaware attorney who, among many other accomplishments, was a founding partner of Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, LLP and past president of the Delaware Bar Foundation and the Delaware State Bar Association. In keeping with Bruce Stargatt`s keen interest in legal writing and the ethical practice of law, we invite scholarly articles on ethical issues in legal practice. Beyond this general description, the exact question to be addressed is left to the discretion of the author. Cash prizes of $3,000, $1,000 and $500 will be awarded to the top three items. The first prize is published in the magazine “Delaware Lawyer” (a publication of the Delaware Bar Foundation distributed quarterly free of charge to all members of the Delaware Bar). The Entertainment Law Initiative fosters future careers in entertainment law by seeking out the best law students in the country and providing them with invaluable networking and educational opportunities. The program includes a national legal writing competition. Modern competition law has historically evolved at the country level to promote and maintain fair competition in markets, primarily within the territorial boundaries of nation states.

National competition law does not normally apply to activities carried out outside territorial borders, unless they have a significant impact at national level. [2] The Länder may authorise extraterritorial jurisdiction in competition matters on the basis of the so-called effects doctrine.
