- A student writing competition is being organized in conjunction with the annual symposium convened by the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution at the University of Missouri School of Law. This year’s symposium is convened by Prof. Carli Conklin and is entitled “Beyond the FAA: Arbitration Procedure, Practice, and Policy in Historical Perspective.” The symposium features Professor James Oldham, the St. Thomas More Professor of Law and Legal History at Georgetown University Law Center, as keynote speaker as well as expert panelists from England and the United States. The competition is sponsored by the Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution and offers a $500 prize to the competition winner. The author of the winning paper may be invited to publish the winning submission in the symposium issue of the Journal of Dispute Resolution, subject to the agreement of both the editors of the Journal of Dispute Resolution and the winning author. Submissions should bear some relationship to the history of dispute or conflict resolution, broadly defined.

There is no requirement that papers discuss U.S. law. Papers must be received no later than 11:59 p.m., Central time, on Monday, November 9, 2015.
