The American College of Environmental Lawyers sponsors an annual Stephen E. Herrmann Environmental Writing Award. A $3500 prize is awarded to the author of a student article, note, case comment or essay published in a student-edited law journal. Writings must promote understanding of legal issues in the broad field of environmental law, including natural resources law or environmental or resources aspects of energy law.
Student edited journals may submit annually a single candidate article, note, case comment or essay. The law journal that submits the winning entry receives $500.
The submission deadline is usually in June. More details and submission information are available here.
