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.
