The Alice Paul Feminist Jurisprudence Essay Contest

Sponsored by the Women and the Law and Legal Rhetoric Programs of American University, Washington College of Law

The purpose of this competition is to inspire the next generation of scholars, lawyers and activists to make daring and creative contributions to feminist jurisprudence.

Washington College of Law has a long tradition of supporting feminist legal scholarship. To honor this tradition, our Feminist Jurisprudence Essay Contest was named in honor of Alice Paul, a Washington College of Law alumna.
