Unpublished scholarly manuscripts on any aspect of U.S. immigration and nationality law may be submitted for competition. The competition is limited to U.S. accredited law school students. The winning author will receive an honorarium of $1,000.
- Manuscripts may be no longer than 50 pages, including endnotes.
Brevity is encouraged, but not at the sacrifice of quality.
- Submissions must be in electronic
format (as an email attachment--Word or WordPerfect format only). See
address information below.
- Manuscript must be accompanied by a cover letter indicating the
title of the manuscript, author's name, mailing address, telephone
number, email address, and name of law school.
- All identification language must be removed from the manuscript;
failure to do so will result in disqualification of the manuscript.
Anonymity of the authors will be maintained.
The Dubroff selection committee will judge the manuscript based on the
treatment of subject matter, critical analysis, clarity of writing, and style.
Authors agree to relinquish to AILF any manuscript reprint copyrights
if the manuscript is chosen. Manuscripts that have been accepted for
publication by another periodical or are otherwise copyrighted may not
qualify. The Dubroff Committee will reserve the award and honorarium
if there are no suitable submissions.
