CALL FOR PAPERS FOR PUBLICATION

2020 CUNY Law Review Symposium
April 3, 2020
City University of New York School of Law

This spring, CUNY Law Review (CUNYLR) will host its Spring Symposium at CUNY School of Law in Long Island City. The symposium is an opportunity for an interdisciplinary gathering of legal scholars, practitioners, and community advocates to engage in dialogue on contemporary legal issues.

Since its foundation, voting power in the United States was exclusively reserved for educated white men who owned property. A century of progress, where communities that were barred from suffrage saw gains in their access to the ballot box, continues to be threatened by concerted efforts to deny them their right to vote.

By bringing together legal scholars, practitioners, and community advocates working on the front lines of the movements for voter rights, we hope to raise awareness of these issues and develop innovative solutions to address the disenfranchisement of marginalized communities. We will use the theme of accessibility to ground our discussion, focusing on how marginalized communities can continue to gain access to the ballot and ensure that unjust laws and policies do not strip away their rights.

CUNY Law Review invites scholars, legal practitioners, advocates, and organizers to submit articles for consideration for publication in an upcoming volume of CUNY Law Review, dedicated to the symposium. We are particularly interested in publishing works that discuss the following areas:
2020 Census
Voter disenfranchisement
Election security/hacking
Lack of oversight over ballot counting technology

Please send one-page proposals via email to mirian.albert@live.law.cuny.edu and christina.das@live.law.cuny.edu. The editors will review the submitted proposals on a rolling basis, with a final due date of December 16, 2019. Please include “CUNYLR Symposium 2020 Publication Submission” in the subject line. Articles not selected for inclusion in the symposium volume may be considered for publication through the Law Review’s digital platform, Footnote Forum.

Proposals should contain the following information:
Name and affiliation of the authors
Working title
An article abstract, no longer than 500 words
Expected article length
Whether attendance at the symposium is contingent on travel reimbursement

Please note that the due date for article drafts for selected articles is March 3, 2020. CUNY Law Review values dialogue and would be amenable to considering alternative timeframes requested in the proposal.
