My colleague, S.I. Strong, is coordinating a student writing competition about the events in Ferguson as follows:
The University of Missouri is sponsoring a student writing competition analyzing the events in Ferguson (and elsewhere) from a dispute resolution / conflicts resolution perspective, as described on the competition website. The deadline is relatively soon — February 13, 2015 — but the submissions can be quite short. The prize money is also substantial, which the students may appreciate! We would appreciate your circulating this information to your students and colleagues in both dispute resolution and criminal law. For more information, please email her.
