Cumberland Law Review Call for Papers

Posted by Edward Gaal, community karma 61

On behalf of the Cumberland Law Review, the Acquisitions Committee is sponsoring a call for papers relating to recent developments on Alabama legal issues. Specifically, we are requesting papers related to differences between the laws of Alabama and other jurisdictions that are applicable to current legal issues.

The Cumberland Law Review Acquisitions Committee welcomes articles on any topic related to the abovementioned issues. Suggested topics may include, but are not limited to comparative analyses between Alabama’s law and other states’ laws on the following issues:

  • Alabama’s prison system (including the DOJ’s investigation)
  • The Death Penalty in Alabama in light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Madison v. Alabama.
  • Issues regarding Teledentistry and TeleMedicine
  • Employment Law (including Paternity Leave)
  • Predispute Elder Care Arbitration Agreements
  • Acceptance of other states professional licenses such as Arizona’s
  • Alabama's abortion and ethics laws. 

Accepted papers will be published in the Cumberland Law Review, Volume 50, Issue I—our Fall 2019 issue—as well as published online by leading legal databases including LexisNexis, HeinOnline, and Westlaw. This quick turnaround allows the Law Review to ensure that certain time-sensitive articles do not become moot during the publication process.

Papers should be formatted pursuant to academic literature standards. The Bluebook citation method should be utilized for footnote text.

Questions may be addressed to our Acquisitions Editor, John Wesley Williamson, at
