The second and final write-on competition for the Akron Law Review is scheduled to begin on August 16th at 8:00 a.m. and to conclude on August 23rd at 11:59 p.m.
Who Can Compete?
- Any full-time student who did not submit a write-on during the first write-on competition, and has a 2.60 GPA or higher, is eligible to compete. [If you downloaded the prompt during the first write-on, but did not submit a paper, you are still eligible to compete.]
- Any part-time student who has successfully completed their first year, as defined by the administration, and has a 2.60 GPA or higher, is eligible to compete. [The top 15% of part-time students automatically grade-on.]
*Due to the decreased time frame for the second write-on, there will be a different prompt to accommodate the shorter time period students will have.
We cannot stress enough the importance of becoming a member of the Law Review. As was evidenced in the On-Campus Interview packet, firms, judges, and employers in general are looking for or expect students to be on Law Review. More importantly, due to changes made by this year’s board, the time commitment on Law Review will be much more manageable, allowing students to complete higher quality notes and/or comments that are eligible for publication.
We hope you will become a member of the Akron Law Review!
