Call for Papers: Litigating Women's Rights

The announcement from the Akron Law Review

The editors of The Akron Law Review believe that issues regarding women’s rights and the movement toward equality deserve renewed and comprehensive exploration. We, thus, propose to publish a symposium issue that will explore the status of litigation regarding women’s rights. In this issue, the Akron Law Review seeks to explore a range of issues, including litigation regarding reproductive rights, pregnancy discrimination, healthcare, employment, sex discrimination, immigration, Title IX, and maternal wall issues of work/family conflict. We will be pleased to develop this subject from a variety of perspectives, including case-law based, statistical, experiential, and historical perspectives.


We welcome papers of any length and request submission on or before March 1, 2014.


The Akron Law Review has been highly ranked in the Washington and Lee Law Review Rankings in the top fifty (50) of general, student-edited law reviews in the "Impact Factor" category since 2005.... [T]he Akron Law Review has been cited by the Ohio Supreme Court more times in the past decade than any other journal.
