This year's LSAC Diversity Writing Competition topic is "Why Pipeline Programs Targeting Students from Underrepresented Racial and Ethnic Backgrounds are Essential to the Future of the Legal Profession." Current JD candidates are invited to submit papers addressing this topic. The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 31, 2017, and LSAC will award three $5,000 prizes to the best paper submitted by a 1L, 2L, and 3L/4L. In addition, one winner will have a chance to publish their entry in the Journal of Legal Education.
We know there are law students following Turtle Talk who could write excellent papers on this topic. LSAC's rules for submissions are at: https://turtletalk.wordpress.com/2017/01/11/law-students-enter-the-lsac-2017-diversity-writing-competition-to-win-5000/.
