Maine Law Review Call for Papers: Accessing Justice in Hard Times

The Maine Law Review plans to publish a symposium issue in the Spring of 2010 entitled Accessing Justice in Hard Times: Lessons from the Field, Looking to the Future. The purpose of this symposium is to gather together, in one place, the perspectives, experiences, and insights of Maine’s top legal scholars, jurists, and practitioners in order to explore the problems created or exacerbated by the state’s, and the nation’s, worsening economic climate. What is happening? Whom is it affecting? How do we begin to address the problems of increasing barriers to justice and provide solutions? The Law Review is committed firmly to the idea that this symposium issue will be relevant, practical, and useful to all segments of the legal population here in Maine and abroad. The Maine Law Review is in the process of soliciting submissions for this important symposium topic. The topic is construed broadly in order to provide an opportunity for a wide variety of viewpoints on a nearly limitless range of sub-topics. This symposium will not be a "traditional" law review publication, as such. The issue will present an interdisciplinary perspective on the subject and include theoretical, empirical, and practical pieces by authors with a variety of backgrounds.

We also are welcoming unsolicited submissions for the symposium for our consideration. The deadline for expressions of interest for submitting to this symposium is June 1, 2009. The deadline for submissions for this symposium is October 1, 2009. Please see the Submissions page for complete details on how to submit an article or email Tina H. Nadeau, Editor-In-Chief, at  tina.h.nadeau@maine.edu for more information.
