Texas Law Review Symposium

2018 Symposium Proposals

The Texas Law Review is currently accepting proposals for our 2018 symposium. We plan to host our symposium in January or February of 2018. The Review traditionally publishes a print issue following the symposium; drafts for this issue would be due in mid-February.

Submissions for symposia are accepted via email at eic@texaslrev.com. Our editorial board plans to make a selection for the 2018 symposium this May. To that end, please plan to submit your proposal by April 15. 

To allow our board to best assess your proposal, please describe your idea and its contribution to legal scholarship as fully as possible, including its originality, timeliness, and contribution to diversity of legal scholarship. Please also submit an addendum that includes the following:

  • A list of potential symposium speakers that you believe would add to the academic quality of the event and who would likely welcome an invitation to publish and/or speak
  • Any anticipated source of funding
  • The name and contact information of the proposed symposium sponsor who will serve as the point person for coordination with the Texas Law Review
