FORUM ON FRANCHISING'S RISING SCHOLAR AWARD
The deadline for the Rising Scholar Award is six months away, but it's not too early to start-or to encourage your eligible associates to submit an article.
To be eligible, entrants must be members of the ABA Forum on Franchising and zero to four years out of law school. Qualified participants should prepare articles according to Franchise Law Journal author guidelines. The due date is July 14, 2014.

The current Forum chair will also be consulted and provide input on the selection of the winning article.
The author of the winning article will receive the following: (1) the article will be considered for publication in a future edition of Franchise Law Journal; (2) the author will be recognized and presented with a plaque at the Annual Forum on Franchising; (3) the author will receive a small financial award to reimburse in part expenses for traveling to the Annual Forum for the award presentation; and (4) the author's registration fee for attending the Annual Forum will be waived.
