2021 Insurance Law Writing Competition
The American College of Coverage Counsel is pleased to again sponsor its annual writing competition for students of insurance law. The competition, which is intended to measure the analytic and writing skills of law students studying insurance, comes with a cash prize and the opportunity to attend the ACCC’s Annual Meeting in Chicago in September 2021.
This year’s writing competition asks students to choose a client from the parties in a case involving claims of sexual harassment and abuse, as well as negligent hiring, training, and supervision practices. Students may submit a response as part of a team or as individuals. Submissions will be judged on the creativity of their proposed solutions and the quality of the writing and analysis.
Three winners will be selected by a panel of ACCC Fellows. The winners will received a cash prize and an invitation to attend the College’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, September 22-24, with a travel stipend. This will present a wonderful opportunity for these students to meet and network with some of the top insurance lawyers in the United States. Indeed, prior competition winners were third-year students who are now practicing at excellent coverage firms around the country.
We request that you inform students of this competition and encourage them to participate. If they plan to participate, they should notify us of their intention to do so by sending an email to email@example.com no later than March 15, 2021, although final submissions are not due until April 16, 2021.
