Quote of the Day - Yes, it's hard to write, but it's harder not to.
If you love to write academic articles, here's your chance, directly from UPenn:
The University of Pennsylvania Law Review is seeking submissions of student-written work advancing a legal argument related to the 2006 symposium topic: "Liability for Global Warming: Law, Economics, and Science." The symposium will explore the potential feasibility and efficacy of lawsuits seeking both monetary and injunctive relief against private and public actors responsible for greenhouse gas emissions that have contributed to global warming-induced harm. The symposium will examine the implications raised by global warming liability from a wide variety of academic perspectives, including law, economics, politics, and environmental science.
The winning paper will be published in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review Symposium Issue in Spring 2007, and the author will be invited to Philadelphia in November 2006 to present the paper at the symposium. After the presentation, the Symposium Scholar will take part in a question and answer session with scholars in the field.
Entrants must be enrolled in a postgraduate degree program during academic year 2006 - 2007. Submissions must be the student's own work and must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere. Citations must conforms to the 18th edition of The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation. Submissions should be 10,000 - 15,000 words.
