The West Virginia Law Review invites proposals for papers and panels for its upcoming “Appalachian Justice Symposium.” The Symposium will take place on February 23-24, 2018, at the West Virginia University College of Law in Morgantown, West Virginia. Law Review editors will select essays for publication in a special symposium issue of the West Virginia Law Review entitled “Essays on Appalachia.” The purpose of the conference is to bring together people from various disciplines to have a serious conversation about the legal and public policy issues faced by Appalachia and to collaborate to develop innovative solutions to those challenges.
The submission deadline is October 1, 2017.
Symposium registration will open in August 2017. The registration fee is $100.00 for all Symposium attendees that are full-time faculty members. Registration is free for students and community members. Symposium attendees are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. Arrangements are being made for conference hotels.
