The University of New Hampshire Law Review (UNHLR) and the Warren B. Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Service seek proposals for the UNHLR’s annual Symposium, which will be held on October 7, 2022.  This year’s Symposium theme is Contemporary Issues in Election Law.  The Editorial Board of the UNHLR welcomes submissions on a range of election law topics including, but not limited to:

  • voting rights;
  • student voters and domicile issues;
  • the Electoral College;
  • the Independent State Legislature Doctrine;
  • voting methods and systems;
  • campaign finance;
  • redistricting and reapportionment;
  • election technology and intellectual property;
  • election administration; and
  • other election law topics. 

Papers should address relatively recent legal and political developments in U.S. election law to provide legal practitioners and policymakers guidance on how best to improve our electoral system. 

The University of New Hampshire Law Review Symposium will be held in-person in Concord, New Hampshire, during New England’s famed foliage season.  A pre-symposium dinner will be held on the evening of Thursday, October 6, and the symposium will take place throughout the day on Friday, October 7.  Up to six manuscripts that are presented at the Symposium will be published in Volume 21 of The University of New Hampshire Law Review.  The Editorial Board asks for submissions to be between 8,000 – 15,000 words in length.  UNHLR welcomes submissions from legal scholars, practitioners, government officials, social scientists, and related professionals.
