Northwestern Law Review 2021 Symposium – Now Accepting Proposals

From the editors of the Northwestern University Law Review:

The Northwestern University Law Review is excited to be accepting proposals for its 2021 Symposium.

The Law Review will consider submissions until February 20th, 2021. Symposium proposals should be submitted via email at [email protected]. After February 20th, the Law Review will review all submissions. Organizers should expect that the Law Review may request further information or the opportunity to discuss the proposal in further detail. The Law Review will notify organizers whether they remain under finalist consideration by March 1st, 2021.

Given the unique circumstances of the pandemic, we do not yet know whether an in-person Symposium event will be possible; however, we would like to keep open the possibility that by the time of our Symposium in Fall 2021, we may be permitted to host live panels and lectures on campus. That said, we ask that you specify in your proposal a roster of potential participants for an in-person event and for an online, remote event.

A strong Symposium proposal should do all of the following in at least 2-3 pages:

  • describe the Symposium idea and its contribution to legal scholarship in as much detail as possible, including its originality, timeliness, and how it fosters diversity of legal scholarship;
  • list potential Symposium speakers and panelists that would add to the academic quality of the event, specifying those who could participate online and/or in person;
  • list potential authors who could write articles and/or essays for publication by Law Review;
  • provide the name and contact information of the proposed Symposium Director, who will serve as the point person for coordination and decisions with the Law Review executive board; and
  • include a draft budget outline and any secured or potential funding sources.

Questions should be directed to Symposium Editor Summer Zofrea at [email protected]. You can find more information on the Law Review's website.
