International Law and Technology Writing Competition Shortlist 202316 February 2023
For the sixth consecutive year, the vLex International Law and Technology Writing Competition has attracted the attention of students around the world. Having received submissions from students from 17 countries around the world, vLex is pleased to announce the official 2023 shortlist of finalists.
Shortlisting is never easy, and this year has been no different. Traditionally, there have been an equal number of shortlisted entries in each category. This year, however, the vast number and quality of articles on law, technology and crypto have resulted in more student articles entering the shortlist. While there have been a number of phenomenal entries, there will still only be one prize for Best in Category for each topic and one overall winner picked from the final pool of shortlisted submissions.
The entire vLex team would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the students who took the time to participate, write some amazing articles, and support this competition. If you are interested in participating in next year’s competition, or if you would like to submit any ideas for future topics, please see the details attached at the end of this blog.
Lastly, congratulations to all of the students who made this year’s shortlist! Your articles are now with the judging panel for blind review, and the winner will be announced in vLex’s April newsletter. If you haven’t already, you can sign up here to receive the newsletter, or follow vLex’s Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram pages for updates.
