HLPR is seeking submissions for its Student Note Competition, to be published in Vol. 12.2 in Summer 2018! The Student Note Competition provides a unique opportunity for law students to publish their work in HLPR, which is distributed to more than 6,000 lawyers nationwide, as well as congressional offices, judges, and other progressive decisionmakers. We are seeking policy-oriented pieces that are 4,000–13,000 words, shorter in length than a typical journal article. We welcome articles that you may have worked on as part of a law school class, or a piece you would like to start from scratch. Visit to see examples of previous student notes and online posts. The deadline for submissions for the Summer 2018 issue is Friday, January 12, 2018. Submissions should be sent to with the subject line “Student Note Competition.” The title of your submission should include your name -do not include your name in the body of your submission. If you have any questions please contact
