The YCC will award the Phanor J. Eder Prize to the best comparative law paper submitted by an LL.B. or J.D. student; one or more honorable mentions will also be awarded.

Papers will be accepted on any subject in public or private comparative law from students currently enrolled in a J.D. or LL.B. program, who will not yet have received their degree as of April 1, 2018.

Submissions from graduate students enrolled in master’s or doctoral programs are not eligible for this prize but may participate in a separate competition. Information is available here: https://ascl.org/new-scholarship/

Submission Instructions

To submit an entry, students should send an email to yccederprize@gmail.com with the subject line:  “Submission for Phanor J. Eder Prize”. The email should state each author’s name and law school contact information, the title of the paper, and a certification that each author is an LL.B. or J.D. student satisfying the criteria set out above. The paper should be attached to this email in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Papers must be no more than 15,000 words (excluding footnotes). Submissions should reflect original research that will not yet have been published by the time of the conference, although it may have been accepted for publication.
