2016 IIC Law Student Writing Awards contest


Submission Deadline: June 15, 2016

The Insolvency Institute of Canada (IIC) is proud to announce that the 2016 Law Student Writing Awards program is now open. This is the 12th year of the award program, which seeks to engage and generate interest among undergraduate law students in the practice of corporate insolvency and restructuring through the research and development of papers. Students have the opportunity to submit their proposals for reform to the business and legal community of which they are about to enter.

2016 Award Program

First, second and third prizes of $7,500, $5,000 and $2,500 will be awarded.

In addition, both the faculty sponsor and the first place award winner will be invited guests at the IIC’s annual conference being held in Bermuda this November. This includes accommodation, most meals and travel costs, which will be reimbursed. If a co-authored paper is judged a winner, the division of the prize and the reimbursed travel costs for the first place winner will be entirely at the discretion of the winners.

For your convenience, details of the program and the entry form are attached in English and French.
