This just in from the EIC of the Illinois Law Review:
In May, the Illinois Law Review intends to select a Symposium for publication in the 2017-2018 volume of the journal. If you are organizing a conference or have an idea that could function as a Symposium, please submit a proposal in electronic form to the Law Review no later than April 29, 2017 by emailing Sam Zuidema at firstname.lastname@example.org. Symposium applicants should prepare a written proposal including the following:
1. A background discussion of the area of scholarship in which the symposium is situated
2. A description of the subject matter of the symposium
3. A discussion of the contribution the symposium will make to legal scholarship
4. A preliminary list of contributors, attendees, or invitees
The Symposium will be selected by a majority vote of the Board of Editors. The Board intends to announce its decision by May 15, 2017.
If you would like to hold a Symposium at the University of Illinois Law School in addition to publication, expenses for travel and accommodation must be assumed by the submitter.
We look forward to considering your submissions. Please do not hesitate to contact Benjamin Paulsen, Editor-in-Chief of Law Review, at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
