The Robert T. Matsui Annual Writing Competition was established by AEF in 2005 to honor the late Congressman Robert T. Matsui and his many accomplishments. Through this writing competition, AEF seeks to encourage legal scholarship on issues of importance to the Asian Pacific American legal community and, more generally, the publication of law review articles on topics of relevance to racial and ethnic minorities and the law.
The winner of the competition will receive a monetary award of five thousand ($5,000), and the winning entry will be published in UCLA Law's Asian Pacific American Law Journal (APALJ), subject to the journal's standard editorial process and copyright policy.
The Competition is open to all law students and anyone who graduated from law school within the last five years (i.e., 2015 or later) in the United States.
Submissions for the 2020 competition must be received by July 1, 2020, 11:59 p.m. EST and should address a legal topic of importance to the Asian Pacific American community. More information and how to apply can be found here.
