H. Thomas Austern Writing Competition

Description

The H. Thomas Austern Writing Competition is intended to encourage law students interested in the areas of law affecting FDA-regulated industries: food, drugs, medical devices, biologics, dietary supplements, cosmetics, veterinary, cannabis, or tobacco and nicotine products. Top papers will be considered for publication in the Food and Drug Law Journal. Students currently enrolled in a JD program at any of the nation's ABA-accredited law schools and 2023-2024 academic year graduates are eligible to participate. We do accept submissions that have been submitted to other writing contests. However, articles must be unpublished at the time of judging in order to remain in consideration for the competition. Articles that have been accepted for forthcoming publication will still be eligible for placement in the competition but will not be considered for publication in the Food and Drug Law Journal. Published papers will be disqualified from the Austern Competition. Please visit the award's website for more information.
