Publication of the Symposium Issue
The Law Review anticipates the 2022 Symposium event occurring in October 2022. The first drafts would be due in early fall, with revised drafts due by the end of the calendar year. Symposium pieces selected would be included in Northwestern University Law Review Volume 118, Issue 1, which will be published in early fall of 2023.
Publication is not guaranteed to any speaker and the Northwestern University Law Review retains full discretion in selecting pieces for publication in our print and online editions. Pieces should be around 10,000 words in length; the entire issue should be 90,000 words or under. The Law Review will offer publishing contracts to certain contributors based on the recommendations of the Law Review board and Symposium organizers.
Questions should be directed to Senior Symposium Editor Sarah Wolf-Knight at NULRSymposium@gmail.com.
