I would like to again invite students to participate in the forthcoming Student Issue of Guild Practitioner, the Guild’s scholarly journal. It’s a call and a contest, with several contributors standing to win one-year memberships and complimentary registration to the 2008 NLG Convention.
The theme of the issue & competition is law for the people–use your imagination and social justice bent to get cracking!
You should know that the contest is COMPLETELY open-format, so you can really spread your wings and flex all of your inter-/multi-disciplinary strengths. There are no limits here! To quote our call: “Fiction and nonfiction, poems and philo-lego-socio-sophical papers, as well as political cartoons, comic strips, scholarly articles on topics and with viewpoints consistent with Guild work, photographic statements and biting social commentary will all be given equal weight during the evaluation process.” This is truly your opportunity to share what it means to be in people’s movements and work for human rights—break the chains of rote memorization, rules, and order. Express yourself!
See here, http://nlg.org/membership/events/gp_competition_2007.php or download a copy of the pdf here, http://nlg.org/membership/events/GP_Contest_2007.pdf — the deadline to enter is December 31, 2007.
I look forward to seeing all of the great submissions! Call or write with any additional questions.
Yours in solidarity,
