CFP: Idaho Law Review symposium on growth and housing affordability

The Idaho Law Review will be holding its annual symposium on land use and growth issues this year.  As some of you may have read in the news, Boise was recently named the least affordable city in America due in large part because of the difference between housing prices, which have grown among the fastest in the country, and local wages, which are among the lowest in the country.  I hope you will consider joining us at this year's symposium and offering some ideas for how to address rapid growth and affordability.  Feel free to reach out to me, if you'd like (millers@uidaho.edu).  Here is the call for papers from the students:


The Idaho Law Review invites articles and essays for its 2022 symposium, Boomtown: Growth and the Clash of Identities in the American West. The topics could include (but are not limited to) land use issues in Idaho, the effects of population growth, homelessness, issues with affordable housing, and landlord/tenant law with COVID. Articles and essays could analyze new issues, tell success stories and draw lessons, or explore problems and propose legal and policy recommendations. The Idaho Law Review welcomes essays (typically 2,000–6,000 words) or articles (typically 7,000–10,000 words).  

The symposium will be primarily virtual and held online April 22, 2022.  A small event will also be held in Boise on April 21, 2022.  The symposium volume of the Idaho Law Review will be published in Spring, 2022. Interested authors are encouraged to send an abstract describing their proposals to the symposium’s Chief Symposium Editor, Charlotte Cunnington, at cunn5162@vandals.uidaho.edu by December 15, 2021. Submissions of draft articles and essays are due by February 15, 2022 (with some flexibility).
