The American Kennel Club® (AKC) is pleased to announce the fifth annual Companion Animal Law Writing Contest! The contest begins on August 23rd and is opened to all students currently enrolled at an ABA-accredited law school.
The contest will offer a first-place prize of $2500 and a second-place prize of $500.
Students are asked to choose between two topics: The impact of “lawyers for dogs” laws on animal cruelty cases or the constitutionality of mandatory spay/neuter laws. This year’s topics offer students the unique opportunity to discuss legal perspectives on issues currently in the news and at the forefront of animal law.
Entries will be judged by legal and public policy professionals with experience in laws impacting companion animals.
Contestants can enter now through April 1, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. EST. To learn more about the contest, including official rules and policies, please click here.
