From the Stanford Law Review:
The Stanford Law Review is pleased to announce that it is now accepting article submissions for its 2009 symposium issue on Media, Justice, and the Law. Articles will be accepted on a rolling basis through December 2008.
As an emerging field of scholarship and debate, the intersection of media and the law has wide-ranging significance. The media (in all forms) interpret, report, and dramatize the law; moreover, the ongoing dialogue among legal actors, policymakers, the media, and the American public informs the opinions and behavior of all participants. The 2009 symposium will focus primarily on issues pertaining to the media and criminal justice, rather than the First Amendment or media regulation, though these topics inevitably play a role in any robust conversation about media and the law.
The live symposium will be held on January 30 and 31 at Stanford Law School. All authors whose articles are chosen for publication will be invited to participate as panelists in the live symposium, which will be one of the law school's largest events during the year. The symposium will bring together prominent legal scholars, practitioners, public officials, journalists, other members of the media, and jurists. This subject matter is timely and richly deserving of exploration, and we look forward to the opportunity to foster dialogue between a variety of diverse participants.
Please send symposium article submissions to Jess Oats, Senior Symposium Editor, at [email protected].
