Oregon's Miller Symposium Call for Papers
Symposium Call for Papers: Miller’s Courts: Media, Rules, Policy, and the Future of Access to Justice
April 13, 2012 University of Oregon White Stag Building Portland, Oregon
Oregon Law Review is currently accepting submissions for the forthcoming Miller Symposium and special issue of our 90th volume. The Miller Symposium will provide a forum for a comprehensive inquiry into questions of access to justice in civil law with special emphasis on the areas within which Professor Arthur Miller has worked throughout his career: rulemaking, class actions, media and the law, technology and privacy, legal pedagogy, and procedural policy.
The symposium will include a panel discussion involving some of the nation’s most distinguished scholars, judges, and practitioners. Panelists will examine Professor Miller’s influence in civil procedure and his contributions to the current civil law landscape. Panelists will also discuss, more generally, current and future trends relating to access to the civil courts.
Submissions may focus on specific contributions of Professor Miller with respect to access to justice inside and outside of the legal academy, or they may speculate as to future trends and possible issues relating to access in the civil system.
Submissions should follow these guidelines:
• Papers of any length will be considered, but OLR’s editors will give preference to articles under 25,000 words.
• Submissions should include a cover letter and a copy of the author’s curriculum vitae. In the cover letter, the author should describe generally the purpose (e.g., tribute, essay, substantive analysis, etc.) of the article. OLR will give preference to substantive articles within the areas described above.
• Submissions may be mailed to our editorial office or may be e-mailed to the Articles Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
• Submissions must be in MS Word format. • Submissions must be received by Monday, January 2, 2012.
Thank you for your interest.
