A Student Prize in Supreme Court History

[We have the following announcement via H-Law.]

The Supreme Court Historical Society annually makes an award for the best student paper submitted during a calendar year.  The Hughes-Gossett Student Award consists of a cash stipend and publication in the Journal of Supreme Court History.  Papers must have been written while a student, but that may be as an undergraduate, graduate, or law student, and must deal with some aspect of Supreme Court history.  This is a broad measure, and in the past we have welcomed papers on particular justices or advocates, cases, or reactions to cases.  This is a history competition, and we do not take papers that are primarily jurisprudential or theoretical.  Papers may be sent as e-mail attachments to Clare Cushman, the managing editor of the Journal, at  Papers may be submitted at any time.
