LEANZ Essay Competition 

We are pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural LEANZ Essay Competition.

The competition is open to current or recent under- or post-graduate New Zealand university students of any discipline. We invite academic essays that approach a legal or public policy issue using an economic analysis (or specifically addresses the failings of such an analysis). Economic analysis means an analysis focussing on efficiency of outcomes and the incentives on the subjects of the rule or policy in question. The essay should recognise the significance of legal instruments and institutions in creating or moulding the incentives. Please note that only sole-authored papers are eligible for entry.

A first prize of $3,000 will be offered together with the opportunity to present the work at a LEANZ seminar event in 2018. A discretionary prize of $1,500 may be awarded to a high-quality runner up. 

Entries close on Monday, 7 May 2018.

Please see flyer with full entry criteria here.
