Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies: Call for Proposals for Symposium Issues

Posted by Julia Raczek, community karma 27

The Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal that seeks to advance scholarship on the transnational aspects of law in the broadest sense – including (but not limited to) questions of politics, culture, economy, and the legal profession. We welcome individual papers as well as proposals for guest-edited symposia on timely topics of potential interest to a wide readership.

At this moment, we are particularly interested in manuscripts themed to current developments in relation to (1) legal (or sociolegal) aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic; (2) global aspects of racial justice movements and their projects of law reform; or (3) a combination of these two areas.

Please address your inquiry on these or other themes to the journal’s faculty and student editors at 

 Please note that all contributions will be individually reviewed, and acceptance of a symposium proposal does not guarantee acceptance of every paper.

A brief e-mail is sufficient for the purposes of an initial inquiry.  The finished proposal should include the following elements:

1.    Name(s) and cv(s) of the proposed editor(s);

2.    Names of all proposed authors, along with titles and abstracts (150 words max) of all proposed contributions;

3.    A statement of rationale by the guest editor (500 words max) including specific reference to the intended contribution to understandings of globalization and legal studies; and

4.    A proposed submission deadline.
