The Legal Writing Program at Baylor Law is proud to host its annual legal writing competition. The format and the prize pool distinguish this competition from any comparable legal writing competition.
The Ultimate Writer Competition tests competitors' abilities to review a packet of materials and draft a real-world legal document based on the packet and writing prompt. This competition will provide a rewarding opportunity to demonstrate your writing skills in a practical legal setting.
Charlie and Lisa Frazier have graciously agreed to underwrite this competition, and the competition’s sponsor is the appellate law firm of Durham, Pittard, & Spaulding, LLP.
The top three finishers win an interview opportunity for a clerkship with Durham, Pittard, & Spaulding, LLP. in Dallas, Texas, plus a cash prize.
