Poetry Contest

We invite you to craft poems that are law- or law school-related, submitting a poem daily (if you want) between now and April 17 at 11:59 PM. Poems will be evaluated by a talented pool of students, faculty, and staff who will assist us in recognizing the best contribution in each category (Student, Staff, and Faculty). We will also award a Best in Show poem.

Please submit your poem(s) using this form.

Poetry Slam

The Law Library will host a poetry slam on April 18th at 5 PM. To encourage participation, we are inviting our poets (if you’re reading your own poem) and performers (if you’re reading a poem by another) to participate in person or submit a video of their performance for screening during the event. Please keep performance length to 3 minutes.

You may submit your video files to me at mbutler at gsu . edu) using the Georgia State Send a File tool. To be included, please submit your files no later than 9 AM on April 18, 2023.
