Writing competitions are a great way to strengthen your research and writing skills and perhaps even win a cash prize! The American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers (ACCFSL) is pleased to announce the 2019 Annual Writing Competition.
ACCFSL is offering this competition across the United States. Each year, they seek to recognize written contributions to the field of U.S. consumer financial services law. The awards include cash payments of $2500, $2000, and $1000, respectively, a Certificate, and travel expenses.
