The Georgetown Law Journal is now accepting proposals for its biennial symposium, which will be hosted on Georgetown Law’s campus in the Fall semester of 2019. As Georgetown’s only generalist law journal, The Georgetown Law Journal is open to symposium proposals on any legal issue. The symposium is intended to stimulate the development of legal scholarship; provide opportunities for interaction between students, academics, and practitioners; and foster novel legal discussions on Georgetown Law’s campus. Previous topics include: The Law of Nations and the United States Constitution; Police/State: Race, Power, and Control; and Law in an Age of Disruptive Technology.

To streamline the proposal process, the Journal requests that all applicants use the attached form. Responses should be limited to 200 words per question. All proposal forms and inquiries should be submitted to Caitlin Haynes, the Journal’s Executive Symposium Editor, at gljsymposiumeditor@gmail.com. Proposals submitted by the priority deadline of April 5, 2019 will be given first consideration. After this date, exemplary proposals will be considered on an ad hoc basis. Applicants should expect that the Journal may request further information or the opportunity to discuss the proposal in further detail. The Journal will notify applicants whether they remain under consideration by April 19, 2019.

We look forward to receiving your proposals and thank you in advance for your interest.
