There are a number of resources which attempt to keep track of writing contests of interest to law students. The webpages are differently organized and are updated on different schedules. There is no assurance that all writing contests will be found on these pages, but they are certainly the place to start. If you are interested in a particular field of law, you should also explore the homepages of organizations devoted to that area to determine if they sponsor competitions.
