OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Know a high school student interested in the law and/or the issue of voter suppression? The Northwestern Undergraduate Law Journal is sponsoring an essay contest for high school students: "We are asking high school students to write an essay responding to our prompt on voter suppression. Essays must answer the topic while incorporating law, an aspect of the legal system, and/or the intersection between the law and another discipline. ... How has voter suppression evolved to influence election outcomes in the 21st century (2000s to present) and how has it endangered American democracy? Analyze your topic through a legal lens, utilizing court cases such as Shelby County v. Holder and other legal documents, opinions, and precedents to formulate your argument." Submissions are due January 11. For more, see www.thenulj.org/hs-contest
