The Robert T. Matsui Annual Writing Competition was established by AEF in 2005 to honor the late Congressman Robert T. Matsui and his many accomplishments. Through this writing competition, AEF seeks to encourage legal scholarship on issues of importance to the Asian Pacific American legal community and, more generally, the publication of law review articles on topics of relevance to racial and ethnic minorities and the law.
The winner of the 2017 competition will receive a monetary award of fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500), and the winning entry will be published by the Asian Pacific American Law Journal (APALJ), at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law subject to the journal’s standard editorial process and copyright policy.
The competition is open to all law students nationwide in the United States and, in future years, may be expanded to include attorneys as well. Submissions for the competition must be received by July 1, 2017, 11:59 p.m. EST. More information and how to apply found at http://www.aefdc.com/matsui-writing-competition/.
