Legal History Writing Competition

If you are a student in law, history, or librarianship, you can enter the Morris L. Cohen Student Essay Competition. "Papers may be on any topic related to legal history, rare law books, or legal archives." The deadline is April 15, 2009.

The competition is sponsored by the American Association of Law Libraries Legal History and Rare Books Special Interest Section. It honors Professor Emeritus Morris L. Cohen, Yale Law School, a scholar, leader in law librarianship, and mentor to many. Law students might know him as the co-author of Legal Research in a Nutshell (KF240 .C6 2007 at Reference Area); researchers in early American law value his magisterial, six-volume work, Bibliography of Early American Law (KF1 .C58 1998 at Reference Area), which provides access to monographs, lectures, pamphlets, trials, and other materials up to 1860.
