University of Illinois Law Review - 2024 Symposium Open Call

Posted by Clare Donohue, community karma 31

The University of Illinois Law Review is soliciting symposium proposals for our 2024 volume. We aim to publish 5–7 articles and/or commentaries on timely and relevant legal topics in our symposium issue. While an in-person event at the College of Law is not required, we welcome proposals that include such an event. Symposium applicants should prepare a written proposal no longer than six pages. The proposal should include the following: 

  1. A description of the subject matter of the symposium;
  2. A short discussion of the timeliness or relevance of the topic and its contribution to legal scholarship; 
  3. A proposed format, identifying the number of lead articles and/or commentaries;
  4. A preliminary list of contributors and their bios; 
  5. Whether each contributor has committed to participate; and
  6. Whether you intend to host an in-person event and, if so, the source of funding.  

The Law Review is unable to fund an in-person event, but we can support the event with staffing and other logistics. 

Please submit a proposal in electronic format to no later than May 13, 2022. We look forward to considering your submissions. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
