Write On Competition
The Office of Journal Administration (OJA) oversees the annual Write On Competition. The Write On Competition is open to first-year students and students who are transferring to Georgetown.
Students who wish to compete must purchase the rights to the online competition packet. The Competition consists of a case comment and a Bluebook test. Some journals also request a separate personal statement and/or resume.
The competition packet is a closed packet. Students may only consult limited materials while writing their own competition paper. The materials may include cases, statutes, and commentary.

The Write On Competition for Transfer students will take place from May 24, 2019 - July 10, 2019.
