The first-place winner will receive $1,500 (and potential publication in the CMBA Bar Journal); the second-place winner will receive $1,000.

This year’s topic is:

What are the ethical considerations for law firms publishing law-related material on their websites and in their social media (e.g., blogs) written by attorneys who are not members of the firm (i.e., “ghost writing”)? You may presume that the firm has the author’s permission to publish the material.

Essays should be no more than 1600 words and will be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word. The deadline for submissions is February 9, 2017. For more information, please visit CleMetroBar.org or call competition director Tom Horwitz at 440-892-3331.
