In addition to publishing the winning submissions in an academic journal, the winning authors will be flown to Washington, DC, to present their papers at a conference at American University Washington College of Law focused on emerging issues in IHL with a panel of expert professors and practitioners.  Winners also will receive a one-year ASIL student membership.   To be eligible to make a submission, students must be enrolled in a law degree program at a US or foreign law school. Submissions must be unpublished academic papers on a topic within the scope of international humanitarian law. The deadline for submissions is Monday, January 31, 2011 by 12pm EST.  For detailed rules and submission guidelines, please visit <http://www.wcl.american.edu/humright/center/student_ihl_writing_competition.cfm
