The NRA CRDF Law Student Second Amendment Research and Writing Competition gives any law student currently enrolled in an ABA accredited law school a chance to win. Just submit a scholarly article suitable for publication on one of two Second Amendment issues. The awards in both categories are $5,000 for first place, $3,000 for second and $2,000 for third place.

Eligible entrants must fill out the form linked here and submit their entry by March 1, 2024, to [email protected]. The two Second Amendment issues to choose from for discussion can be viewed here and here.

Since its inception, the NRA CRDF has awarded millions of dollars for legal research, education and support of cases defending the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. For more about the NRA CRDF and any other questions, visit
