Call For Papers

The New York University Annual Survey of American Law is honored to dedicate its 76th Volume
to Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president emerita of the Children’s Defense Fund.

Topic

Marian Wright Edelman has been a fierce advocate for disadvantaged Americans throughout her
entire career. After graduating from Yale Law School, she worked as the Director of the NAACP
Legal Defense and Educational Fund as the first black woman admitted to the Mississippi State
Bar. She went on to become counsel for the Poor People’s Campaign before founding the
Washington Research Project and the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF).

This Dedication Issue seeks to explore topics related to Marian Wright Edelman’s contributions
to the legal community. We encourage all interested scholars, practitioners, and graduate
students to submit paper proposals on civil rights, children’s rights, poverty, and other
relevant topics. Selected papers will be published along with tributes to Marian Wright Edelman
written by Olivia Golden, Martin Guggenheim, Elaine R. Jones, Sara Rosenbaum, Robert
Schwartz, John Sexton, and James D. Weil.

Submission of Papers

All submissions should be sent to law.annualsurvey@nyu.edu no later than June 17, 2019. We
are accepting proposals on a rolling basis. Authors will be informed whether they have been
selected for publication within three weeks of submission. Authors will then have until
September 30, 2019 to submit their papers.

Proposals should include a title, detailed abstract, and description of how the author’s chosen
topic relates to the life and work of Marian Wright Edelman.

About the Journal

Founded in 1942, the New York University Annual Survey of American Law is a student-edited
journal at New York University School of Law. The Annual Survey is NYU’s second-oldest legal
journal and was originally compiled by NYU faculty members as a comprehensive annual
reference to developments in American law. Now a quarterly publication, the Annual Survey
continues its dedication to exploring contemporary legal developments in the United States from
a practice-oriented perspective. Annual Survey articles analyze emerging legal trends, interpret
significant recent court decisions and legislation, and explain leading legal scholars’ and judges’
perspectives on current legal topics. The journal is widely distributed throughout the world, giving
lawyers both inside and outside the United States insight into American law and legal issue
