ANNUAL COMPETITION STARTS IN LAW SCHOOL

Dean Landis Appoints Law Committee To Pick Winner of $100 Prize on Legal Document

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Open to members of the graduating classes of selected law schools of the country, an annual competition in memory of Nathan Burkan has been inaugurated by The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers. The Law School is a participant in the competition.

An award of $100 will be paid to the third-year student in the Law School who writes the best paper on some subject in copyright law. The paper may be written on the broad subject of copyright law, or on any phase of copyright law; or it may be an analysis of the fundamental principles and policies that justify a law of copyright.

Dean Landis will appoint the committee, which may withhold the award entirely, if in its judgment no worthy paper is submitted, or may divide the award.

It is expected that the paper winning the award offered to Harvard students will be published in the local periodicals and that the best paper received from all schools in the competition will be published in an outstanding legal journal of national circulation.

Essays must be submitted to the Dean on or before March 15, 1938. An explanatory pamphlet may be obtained at the office of the Secretary of the Law School at Gannet House.
