The Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI) sponsors the H. Thomas Austern Memorial Writing Competitions to encourage law students interested in the areas of law that affect food, drugs, animal drugs, biologics, cosmetics, diagnostics, dietary supplements, medical devices and tobacco. Winning papers will be considered for publication in the Food and Drug Law Journal. There are two competitions — one for papers with a maximum of 40 pages, and one for papers between 41 and 100 pages. Papers longer than 100 pages will not be accepted.

Eligibility
Entrants must be currently enrolled in a J.D. program at, or be a 2012-2013 academic year graduate from, any of the nation's ABA-accredited law schools.

Topics and Requirements
Papers should provide an in-depth analysis of a current legal issue concerning food, drugs, animal drugs, biologics, cosmetics, diagnostics, dietary supplements, medical devices or tobacco. FDLI welcomes the submission of papers prepared for course work, but entrants must edit their papers to address competition requirements. Entrants should access the FDLI website for suggestions of suitable topics, and for more information about the competition.

Prizes
1st Place: $4,000
2nd Place: $1,000

Papers must be received no later than June 7.
