The competition, which honors former Antitrust Division official and Jones Day partner Bill Swope’s pioneering ability to clarify abstract and complex issues, is open to students currently enrolled in full- or part-time juris doctorate or more advance degree programs at U.S. law schools accredited by AALS and non-U.S. schools of equivalent standing. Current judicial clerks who have graduated from such programs and practicing lawyers who graduated from such degree programs in May 2003 or later are also invited to participate.
One $10,000 prize and two $1,500 honorable mention prizes will be awarded. Winners will attend the 2009 Spring Meeting of the American Bar Association Antitrust Section in Washington as guests of Jones Day and be guests of honor at a Firm reception. See more.
