This year’s Legal Cheek annual competition run with BARBRI gives you the chance to win a return flight to New York. You have until 30th April to get creative! The top 3 entrants will also see their work published on Legal Cheek.
What do I need to do?
Think carefully about who your US legal hero might be and record a 60 second vlog to explain your choice. They must be a real person and related to the law. You then need to upload to Twitter, YouTube or Instagram, tagging @legalcheek in your post, as well as adding the hastag #MyUSLegalIcon. There are alternative methods of submitting – see the competition page for further details.
Spoilt for choice?
Here’s what Legal Cheek say on the inspiration front..
Will it be daytime tele queen Judge Judy? Or perhaps it’s one of the many famous US politicians with a background in law — Abraham Lincoln or Michelle and Barack Obama?
Maybe it’s Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that is more up your street. America’s answer to Lady Hale is a staunch advocate for gender equality, having dedicated a large chunk of her legal career to championing women’s rights. She’s a pop-culture icon, too. The 85-year-old is often referred to as ‘The Notorious R.B.G’, a play on rapper ‘The Notorious B.I.G’s nickname.
