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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Papers may be submitted at any time.
