The American Kennel Club Announces New Writing Contest for Law Students

New York, NY – The American Kennel Club® (AKC), the world’s largest purebred dog registry and leading advocate for dogs, is pleased to announce the launch of the Companion Animal Law Writing Contest.

The contest is open to all students currently enrolled at an ABA-accredited law school. The contest will offer a first-place prize of $2500 and a second-place prize of $500. Students will have two topics to choose from and submissions are currently being accepted. The topics available are companion animal law and pet custody law.

“The American Kennel Club is pleased to sponsor the Companion Animal Law Writing Contest,” said Sheila Goffe, AKC Vice President of Government Relations. “These students represent the future of animal law. We look forward to reading their responses on these hot-button issues; and encourage them to submit their work.”

Entries will be judged by legal and public policy professionals with experience in laws impacting companion animals. Contestants can enter now through March 30, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. EST.

The AKC is happy to welcome the American Veterinary Medical Association, Cat Fanciers Association, and the Animal Health Institute as collaborators on the Companion Animal Law Writing Contest.
