Law Student Practical Skills Writing Competition on Insurance Law Problem

The American College of Coverage Counsel is pleased to again sponsor its annual writing competition for students of insurance law. The competition, which is intended to measure the analytic and writing skills of law students studying insurance, comes with a cash prize and the opportunity to attend the ACCC’s Annual Meeting in Chicago in September 2021.

This year’s writing competition asks students to choose a client from the parties in a case involving claims of sexual harassment and abuse, as well as negligent hiring, training, and supervision practices. Students may submit a response as part of a team or as individuals. Submissions will be judged on the creativity of their proposed solutions and the quality of the writing and analysis.

Three winners will be selected by a panel of ACCC Fellows. The winners will received a cash prize and an invitation to attend the College’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, September 22-24, with a travel stipend. This will present a wonderful opportunity for these students to meet and network with some of the top insurance lawyers in the United States. Indeed, prior competition winners were third-year students who are now practicing at excellent coverage firms around the country.
