Announcement for junior faculty writing prize:

SEAL is now accepting submissions for the 4th Junior Faculty Writing prize. Applicants, who must be untenured at the time of their submission’s publication acceptance, should submit a citation to, or link to, a publication not previously submitted for this prize. Send applications by April 15, 2011, to seal@law.vanderbilt.edu.

Entries will be judged by a panel made up of professors drawn from the disciplines of law, biology, and psychology, who will judge them on the bases of originality, breadth and depth of research, accuracy, creativity, and clarity of thought and expression. The competition is run on a periodic basis and the judges reserve the discretion to determine no entries are appropriate for recognition.
