The Harvard Journal of Law and Technology is excited to announce our law student writing competition for publication in our Spring issue. Submissions should be 4,000 to 6,000 words and engage with novel issues at the intersection of law and technology. Topics may include but are not limited to cybercrime, biotechnology, space law, entertainment and new media, comparative legal approaches to intellectual property, the law of the Internet, and technology in the public interest. We encourage creative approaches.

The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM Eastern Time on January 15, 2019. Submissions will be evaluated on a rolling basis but all pre-deadline submissions will be considered! The author of the top submission meeting JOLT’s publication standards will be published in the Spring issue of JOLT and receive a $300 prize. Additional high-quality submissions may also receive cash prizes and publication.
