The 2015 Articles Board is reviewing submissions for the 2015 Volume of the University of Illinois Law Review. Additionally the Board is seeking symposia submissions for the 2016 Volume of the Law Review.

A Call for Symposia

This summer, the Law Review’s Board of Editors intends to select a Symposium for publication in the journal’s 2016 Volume.  If you are organizing a conference, please submit a Symposium proposal in electronic form to me no later than June 1, 2014.  If exceptional circumstances require submitting a proposal after this deadline, please contact me as soon as possible.  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.
Proposals should be no longer than six pages.  The Symposium will be selected by majority vote of the Board of Editors.  The Board intends to announce its decision by July 1, 2014.
We look forward to considering your submissions.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Light Edit Policy

The Law Review follows a light edit policy. After an article is accepted, we discuss the scope of editorial input that the author desires. Even if an author does not request a light edit, our editors presume that the author’s diction and syntax have been carefully chosen. Accordingly, we make stylistic changes only when such changes are strictly necessary to enhance clarity or grace. This policy reflects our belief that legal scholarship should express its author’s voice, not ours.

Citation and Style Guidelines

Manuscripts should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) and to The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (19th edition).
