Organized by Georgetown Law’s Center for the Advancement of the Rule of Law in the Americas (CAROLA), the competition welcomes short essays with ideas on how to respond to the current globalization backlash as well as those that offer alternatives to the current global architecture. Essays that address legal and policy questions concerning an area of international economic law, including but not limited to, international trade, development, foreign investment, sovereign debt, tax, labor, and immigration are especially encouraged.
The deadline for submission has been extended to 5pm EST on Thursday, November 30. The competition is open to all students currently enrolled in a degree program around the world. Submissions must be written in English and consist of short, 900 to 1,200 word essays. The top submission will be eligible for publication in Americas Quarterly. Winning essays will also be awarded the Marcos and Ida Kerschner Prize: $2,500 for first place, $1,500 for second place, and $1,000 for third place.
