The Ultimate Writer Competition



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.

Baylor Law's The Ultimate Writer features a $5,000 prize pool and a prestigious clerkship opportunity!

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.

The top three finishers win an interview opportunity for a clerkship with Kelly, Durham, and Pittard, L.LP. in Dallas, Texas, plus a cash prize.
