The questions will be available from the Reference Desk throughout the duration of the contest, and are also available from the Library homepage. Participants are encouraged to stop by the Reference Desk to chat with one of the librarians!

All entries must be submitted electronically to the Reference Department email: lawlib@camden.rutgers.edu by 11:59pm on Friday, August 28, 2015 to be considered to a prize.
