If you are a newer scholar and you are interested in legal issues surrounding what the future holds for detainees at Guantanamo Bay, be sure to submit an article to the call for papers issued by the law review for my home institution, the Southern Illinois University Law Journal. The SIU Law Journal seeks scholarly articles for a special Symposium issue relating to the U.S. constitutional, procedural, ethical and international law issues relating to the military trials and continued detention of Guantanamo Bay detainees.
The SIU Law Journal will choose the best Symposium article from a newer law faculty member (defined as a law faculty member who has been part of the legal academy for seven (7) years or less) on a legal issue pertaining to Guantanamo Bay. The article should be approximately twenty to twenty-five pages in length. In addition, the author of the chosen article will be invited to attend the Guantanamo Bay Symposium at SIU School of Law on February 22, 2013, all travel expenses paid, to give a presentation on the topic of his or her article. Although only one scholar will be invited to participate in the symposium through this call for papers, the SIU Law Journal will consider the other articles submitted for publication in the Symposium issue.
The full manuscript, in Word format, should be e-mailed to the Editor-in-Chief of the SIU Law Journal by November 19, 2012. Please feel free to contact the Editor-in-Chief, Brian Lee, if you have any questions or concerns. The contact information for the SIU Law Journal may be found here.
