National Security Law Journal 2016 Write-On Competition The following are the instructions for the 2016 Write-On Competition for George Mason Law Review (GMLR), Civil Rights Law Journal (CRLJ), Journal of Law, Economics & Policy (JLEP), Journal of International Commercial Law (JICL), and National Security Law Journal (NSLJ). Unless otherwise noted, the following instructions apply to all five journals. This packet represents the final word on all matters pertaining to the Write-On Competition and supersedes anything you may have heard either at an information session or from a member of any journal. In particular, please note that all submissions must be hand-delivered, electronically submitted, or postmarked by May 27th, 2016. Hand deliveries must be made in the Records Office (3rd Floor of Hazel Hall) and/or submitted electronically by no later than 5:00 pm EDT.
For those participating in the Write-On Competition who wish to submit to journals requiring hard copy submissions, exemption for hard copy submission may be granted on a case by case basis for extenuating circumstances (i.e. being out of the country during the Competition). Those seeking exemption from submitting hard copies must email the contact listed in each journal’s submission requirements by 5:00 pm EDT on May 18th, 2016. Exemptions will not be granted for any requests received after that time.
The Write-On packet is prepared and managed by George Mason Law Review. Please direct all questions regarding the 2016 Write-On Competition to George Mason Law Review’s Senior Notes Editor, Stacey Harlow, at email@example.com. DO NOT send any submissions to Stacey, as this would compromise blind grading. For electronic submissions, please see the journal-specific instructions that follow.
