LLM Students in Scotland Can Join Clan Childlaw’s Essay Competition

Clan Childlaw is inviting law students, including LLM students, to participate in an essay writing competition. Clan Childlaw is a law center in Edinburgh, Scotland, which provides advocacy and legal services for children and young people. The center champions children's rights and related laws.

Clan Childlaw is celebrating its 10th anniversary and the essay competition is one of its key events. The contest is open to all LLB, LLM and Diploma (in Professional Legal Practice) students currently enrolled at universities in Scotland.

The essay must not exceed 1500 words (including footnotes) and should answer the question: What is the biggest children’s rights issue in Scotland and how can the law be used to resolve it?

All entries will be accepted until 5:00 pm of 1 October 2018. The essay must be e-mailed at info@clanchildlaw.org along with the completed entry form which can be downloaded from www.clanchildlaw.org/law-student-essay-competition. A proof of enrollment (2017/18 or 2018/19 academic years) to any of the eligible law programs in a Scottish university must also be attached. The content of the essay must not have any identifying features as it will be judged anonymously.

The winning entry will be published on Clan Childlaw's website and the winning writer will be offered to have one week of work experience at the center. Submitting an entry constitutes the writer's permission to publish the essay entirely or in part at the website (or any other medium) of Clan Childlaw. Further information about the competition may be found at the center's website.
