SIEL/CUP International Economic Law Essay Prize

Written by

The deadline for the Society of International Economic Law (SIEL)/Cambridge University Press’ 2012 International Economic Law Essay competition is fast approaching. That deadline is 30 September. The SIEL and CUP award a prize for the best essay submitted on any topic in any field of international economic law. For clarification, essays with a focus on international commercial arbitration or EU law will not be considered for this Prize.

The competition is open to all current undergraduate and graduate students of any university or other tertiary education institution, and those who have graduated from a university or other tertiary education institution no earlier than five years before the submission deadline. Members of the SIEL Executive Council may not submit entries. The essay must not have been previously published.

The prize consists of £200, as well as £300 of Cambridge University Press book vouchers and a three year subscription to the  World Trade Review. The winning essay will be submitted to the World Trade Review for publication. Publication of the essay in the World Trade Review will be subject to the WTR’s normal review and decision procedure, but the WTR Editorial Board commits to expediting consideration with a view to early publication.

The prize will be awarded by the SIEL Executive Council on the recommendation of a Prize Committee drawn from its members and the Editorial Board of the World Trade Review. Decisions of the Prize Committee on the winning essay and on any conditions relating to this prize are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Further information about the competition is available at the website of SIEL. Any queries should be addressed by email to Dr Lorand Bartels, University of Cambridge (lab53 {at}
