Student Deak Award

ILSA is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Student Deak Award. All nominations must include the student’s name, school, graduation year, full article (pdf), and article citation. Nominations must be sent to [email protected] by March 12, 2017. Late submissions will not be accepted. 

The Student Deak Award is a prize provided by Oxford University Press for the best international law student article in a student-edited law journal. The award honors Francis Deak, a WWII veteran who wrote extensively on international law. The award is the student equivalent of the prize separately awarded by the American Journal of International Law to a younger author for meritorious scholarship in the prior year's volume of the Journal.

Students, professors, practitioners or other persons in the legal community may nominate students for the Deak Award. A student may even nominate his own article.

Per award rules, the nominee must have been a student at the time the article was written, and the article must have been published in a student-edited journal during the award year (2016). All nominations satisfying these criteria will be considered by the awards committee who will choose the winning submission.

The award will be presented at the American Society of International Law's 2017 Annual Meeting which will be held in Washington, DC in mid-April. 

Any questions about the award may be directed to [email protected]
