Deadline: The submission period for the 2019 Richard D. Cudahy Writing Competition on Regulatory and Administrative Law is now open. All submissions must be submitted to Cudahy@acslaw.org by Sunday February 3, 2019.

Eligibility: The competition is open to all lawyers and law students. Practicing lawyers, policymakers, academics, and law students all are encouraged to participate. Coauthored submissions are eligible and if selected, the coauthors will share the prize. Submissions must be original academic works that are either unpublished or published no more than one year prior to the competition deadline (specifically, not before January 2018). If a submission has been published or accepted for publication, the author should include written consent from the journal to make sure it will consent to ACS posting the publication on its website, with appropriate attribution.

Content: Submissions should be related to American regulatory or administrative law, broadly construed. Appropriate subjects include empirical or comparative analyses of the effectiveness of specific regulatory regimes or deregulation; doctrinal investigations of the development of administrative law rules or principles by courts and administrative agencies and the effects of that development; and normative analyses of how particular regulatory or administrative regimes or deregulation advance or fail to advance values of fairness, participation, and transparency.
