Every year, a variety of organizations offer significant awards to students for writing essays on legal issues. These awards are advertised in Headnotes as they are announced, but they are also gathered together on this web page for convenient reference.

The awards are provided in the format in which they were received (PDF, Word, HTML). For more information about any award, contact Cathy Alzner at cathy.alzner@utoronto.ca (unless another contact person is provided).

NOTE: deadlines for these contests vary widely. Contests are kept in this list for reference after expiry because they may be repeated in future years.
