Beverly Hills Bar Foundation Rule of Law Competition Due

Due: Monday, April 2, 2018 —  Historically, the Beverly Hills Bar Association and Bar Foundation and have been closely tied to Rule of Law issues. The Beverly Hills Bar Foundation’s Eighth Annual Rule of Law Competition will culminate at the Bar’s 64th Annual Supreme Court Luncheon in June, 2018 with the awarding of a $2,500 prize to the winning law student, plus honorable mention prizes.

This competition encourages law students to integrate Rule of Law concepts into their writings. Papers may be on any topic either directly discussing an aspect of the Rule of Law, demonstrating how the Rule of Law affected the topic, defining the Rule of Law, criticizing the Rule of Law, or demonstrating the economic social or political effects of the Rule of Law.

As Justice Anthony Kennedy said about The Rule of Law: “I want lawyers to be once again advocates for the Rule of Law. And this involves a reassessment by lawyers of very fundamental principles of democracy and of our culture and of our history, and freedom. So, I think of this in part as a way to re energize the Bar so that the Bar can reaffirm and rededicate itself to these first principles…”

Your participation in this competition is an important step in that direction.
