CONTEST DETAILS and ENTRY INFORMATION

  • The ABA Journal will accept entries for the Contest through May 15, 2024. 
  • Entries must be original works of fiction of no more than 5,000 words that illuminate the role of the law and/or lawyers in modern society.
  • The winner will receive a prize of $5,000.
  •  Entrants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents and 21 years or older by May 15, 2024. 
  • Winner is responsible for all taxes associated with receipt of the prize. As a condition of receiving the prize, winner must submit a completed IRS Form W-9.

Deadline for entries is 5 p.m. CDT May 15, 2024.

  • The ABA Journal will accept only one entry by any individual author. Joint entries are not permitted.
  •  Entries must be submitted via email to webmaster@abajournal.com
  • Please attach your story as a .doc or .pdf file to your email with the subject line Ross Writing Contest Submission, and include your full name, mailing address, daytime phone number, and whether you are an ABA member. 
  • ABA membership is not necessary to win. ABA is not responsible for errors in transmission, computer errors, or similar problems.

Entries may be unpublished, or published no earlier than December 1, 2023. Entries posted publicly on the internet, regardless of the forum or venue, will be considered published for the purposes of the Contest, as would be any entry published in a print publication or literary journal of any kind. The ABA Journal will be the sole judge of an entry's eligibility.

The author of any work submitted will retain copyright to his or her entry. However, by submitting a work for consideration in the contest, the winning author grants the American Bar Association and/or the ABA Journal a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide license to publish the work in its periodicals, books, anthologies, e-books, audiobooks or any other publication platform, whether print or digital or hereafter developed, without further compensation.

Contest entries will be judged by a panel selected by the editor and publisher of the ABA Journal and the winner confirmed by the ABA Journal Board of Editors. All decisions are final. 

Entries will be judged on creativity, plot exposition, legal insight and character development. The winner will be notified on or before July 5, 2024. Winner will be notified by email prior to any public announcement. If winner does not respond within five business days, or email is returned as undeliverable, winner forfeits all right to prize and an alternate winner will be chosen.

ABA officers, directors, staff members, members of the ABA Journal Board of Editors and their immediate household or family members, and freelance writers for the ABA Journal who have been paid for articles published after January 1, 2023, are not eligible to enter or win.
