The Admiral John S. Jenkins Prize for Excellence in Military Studies is an essay contest for students of military law sponsored by the National Institute for Military Justice (NIMJ).
Students may nominate their own work, including work that has been published in a law journal. Faculty may also nominate deserving student papers. Papers and/or published articles are eligible for this award if they were written by a candidate for a J.D. degree (that is, by a student who has not yet completed his or her studies) during the period from 01 August 2018 to 31 July 2019. Submissions will be judged by a committee of law professors and practitioners on the criterion of “excellence in writing on military law.” If no paper is deemed worthy, the committee may elect not to make an award. Interested students or recommending faculty should submit the paper, along with the author¹s name, phone number and email, and any publication information on the paper, to NIMJ at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 31 July 2019.
