Withstand Lawyers expects that students submit only their own original work for the essay and avoid plagiarising the work of others or cheating. Re-using any of your own work (either in part or in full) which you have submitted previously for any reason is not permitted without appropriate acknowledgment. Plagiarism can be detected and has led to applicants being disqualified from the competition. The winner of this competition in addition to receiving the $4,000 will also have their essay published on our website. By completing the essay your consent and release all rights to Withstand Lawyers to publish your essay. There will only be one (1) winner. Please note your paper will be assessed by our Senior Immigration Lawyers and Senior Registered Migration Agents.
