The Loyola Law Review is currently accepting submissions for both the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 issues of Volume 67. First published in 1920, the Loyola Law Review is produced by a select group of students from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law.
Fall 2020: The Ghost in the Courthouse: Confronting History in the Gulf South
The Gulf South is a nexus of peoples -- Cajun, African, Spanish, French, British, Creole, Seminole, Houma, and so many more -- each of whom made an imprint on how we govern ourselves. Historical systems of power haunt and shape how law works in the Gulf South region today, from the troubled roots of the cash bail system to complex riparian property rights. We are seeking papers that explore how history informs the present legal system with a focus on the unique issues in the Mississippi Delta and our surrounding communities. We welcome submissions related to any area of law.
Spring 2021: When Disaster Strikes: The Law and Crisis Response
Crises like COVID-19 and Hurricane Katrina bring the world to a halt and highlight the shortcomings of our present systems. In the midst of the first global pandemic in a neoliberal world with changing definitions of borders, we are faced with procedural shortcomings, constitutional conundrums, and public health pitfalls. Accordingly, the law must respond. Should the law enter a state of exception and change in a time of emergency? How will that emergency shape the law for the future? What are our successes and failures from the past? We welcome submissions related to any area of law.
Our editors look forward to reading your submissions.
