The Philip R. Shawe Scholarship Competition
Sponsor: The Philip R. Shawe Scholarship Competition
More Information: Website
Topic: Contestants will prepare briefs of no more than 15-pages. Contestants will address the U.S. constitutional implications (Due Process and Takings Clauses) of the Delaware courts' powers to adopt a forced sale remedy when shareholders of a highly profitable, privately-held corporation are deadlocked. The briefs should not simply reiterate the arguments made by the appellant in the Delaware Courts, but develop novel legal and policy arguments regarding the decision to appoint a custodian and to direct the sale of the corporation under Delaware General Corporate Law §226. Students are not limited to the lines of argument raised in the case materials.
Award:
  • First place: $65,000
  • Second place: $25,000
  • Third place: $10,000
The top graded 25 briefs will then be ranked by the Panel, who will select the top three. The top three contestants will prepare their arguments as if they were going before the United States Supreme Court. The three contestants will present their oral arguments to the Panel. The Panel will rank the three oralists. Scholarships will be given in the following amounts: First place will be awarded $65,000, second place $25,000, and third place $10,000.
