The Mary Rose Strubbe Labor & Employment Law Writing Prize

Submissions have to be related to labor and employment law, but they do not need to be solely labor and employment topics. Any paper that touches on the workplace is eligible. The deadline is June 15, 2023. More information can be found online.

The Strubbe Prize is awarded annually for the best piece of legal writing in labor and employment law by a Chicago-Kent student or alumni. Entries are anonymously judged by a group of Chicago-Kent faculty, adjunct faculty, and alumni. The award money is a check of $5,000, awarded to one individual. In addition to the monetary award, the paper will be published on the Chicago-Kent Institute for Law and the Workplace website and shared with prize donors.

The prize is named after Mary Rose Strubbe, who served as Chicago-Kent’s director of Legal Research and Writing and as assistant director of the Institute for Law and the Workplace. Upon her retirement in 2017 after 23 years at Chicago-Kent, the Chicago Federation of Labor and Chicago-Kent faculty and alumni joined together to establish the Mary Rose Strubbe Labor & Employment Writing Prize to honor her impact on the legal education of thousands of lawyers.
