Call for Submissions: American University Law Review Supreme Court Symposium

Posted by Morgan Crawford, community karma 27

The American University Law Review is placing a call for submissions of original legal articles and scholarly commentaries for its forthcoming Annual Symposium issue, this year dedicated to a review and response to the 2021 through 2022 Supreme Court term and the upcoming term. Specifically, the Law Review seeks submissions analyzing the rapidly evolving response to the Supreme Court’s decisions in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, Carson v. Makin, Shurtleff v. City of Boston, and pending cases before the Supreme Court in the next term on affirmative action, the Indian Child Welfare Act, free speech, and more. Approximately four to six submissions will be selected, with a publication date slated for the spring of 2023.

The American University Law Review is ranked among the top fifty law journals in the country and is proud to host an annual symposium focusing on timely, emerging issues in the law. The symposium will feature panels on reproductive justice post-Dobbs, First Amendment jurisprudence, and a forward-look to the 2022 through 2023 Supreme Court term, convening judges, scholars, and practitioners to discuss cutting-edge legal topics with vigorous audience engagement. Selected authors will have the opportunity to present their work as a panelist at this year’s symposium series.

How to Submit

Please submit manuscripts to the Law Review through Scholastica by January 3, 2023. Authors should include a brief abstract and a curriculum vitae (cv) with their manuscript.
