This installment of Write On!, our periodic compilation of calls for papers, includes calls to submit papers for the Rosalyn Higgins Prize as follows:

► The Law & Practice of International Courts and Tribunals now invites submissions for the Rosalyn Higgins Prize. The Rosalyn Higgins Prize is an annual prize which awards EUR 1,000 of Brill book vouchers and a LPICT subscription to the author of the best article on the law and practice of the International Court of Justice, either solely focusing on the ICJ or with the ICJ as one of the dispute settlement mechanisms under consideration. The winning article will also be published in LPICT and made freely available online to maximize its dissemination.

► Competition for the Prize is open to all: scholars as well as practitioners, junior as well as senior professionals. Submissions will be selected via a double-blind peer review process by a Prize Committee, including both co-Editors-in-Chief. Exceptionally, two papers of an equally high standard can be selected. The Committee is also able to choose not to award the Prize if in its opinion none of the submitted papers reaches the required standards.

► Submissions should be between 6,500 and 8,000 words in length, not yet published or under review elsewhere. Other submission requirements are the same as for regular LPICT submissions. Instructions available here. The deadline is August 31, 2019. All papers for consideration of the 2019 prize should be sent directly to Pierre Bodeau-Livinec (bodeaulivinec@gmail.com ) and Freya Baetens (freya.baetens@jus.uio.no), LPICT Co-Editors-in-Chief. The winner(s) will be announced in September 2019.
