Mr. Grand, a 1958 graduate of the College of Law and a distinguished litigator, conceived the idea of a writing competition that would emphasize persuasive skills and effective communication. All students at the Rogers College of Law were eligible to enter. Using a legal problem prepared by the faculty at the Rogers College of Law, students  prepared a written legal argument. The form and content of the problem changes from year to year. The students’ writing was judged for accuracy, brevity, clarity, and persuasiveness.
