ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DISH (DISH Network L.L.C., a subsidiary of DISH Network Corporation (NASDAQ: DISH)), has announced the topic for its third annual DISH ® "Best in Class" eDiscovery Legal Research and Writing Competition.  This year, law students will be challenged to address the question of "What changes should be made to the civil discovery rules to better facilitate the just, speedy, and inexpensive resolution of matters?"

"DISH's 'Best in Class' writing competition continues to encourage law students to build practical knowledge as it relates to eDiscovery.  This year's competition provides students with a timely opportunity to research and analyze the rules that will govern eDiscovery when they begin their careers," said R. Stanton Dodge, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, DISH Network L.L.C.

Mr. Dodge, as well as attorneys from the Information Law firm of Redgrave LLP, will judge the submissions, evaluating them based on originality, quality of legal and technical analysis, quality of writing, and citation of authority and support for arguments.  The DISH ® "Best in Class" eDiscovery Legal Research and Writing Competition is open to all students who are enrolled in an ABA-accredited law program in the United States at the time of submission.  Contest submissions are due by October 18, 2013.  The author of the winning selection will receive a $3,500 cash award.

"The judiciary today is as keen as ever to realize the promise of Rule 1 – the just, speedy, and inexpensive resolution of civil matters.  The proposed rule changes being considered in 2013 at the federal level represent a substantial development that builds on the 2006 eDiscovery amendments.  Indeed, the final form of the new rules will impact an entire generation of civil lawyers.  As such, we believe it is very fitting that the 2013 DISH 'Best in Class' writing competition will focus law students across the country on the rules that will become front and center in their litigation practice."
