The Southern Illinois University Law Journal

The Southern Illinois University Law Journal invites paper submissions for their symposium that will take place on March 19, 2020, in Carbondale, Illinois. This year Illinois passed HB 1438 legalizing recreational marijuana.  Thus, the symposium will focus on the rapidly changing regulation of marijuana. 

Please submit an abstract of up to 500 words, along with your contact information, to the Editor in Chief, Skylar Petitt at skylar.petitt@siu.edu.  Abstracts must be submitted by December 1, 2019, and selection of articles and symposium speakers will be made on a rolling basis, with all decisions being made by January 15, 2020. 

The usual length of our symposium pieces is somewhere between an essay (5,000 words) and a full-length article (15,000 words); however, there is no set length for our symposium writers, and shorter or longer articles are acceptable. The journal anticipates a deadline for the completed article of July 1, 2020, and publication in the Fall of 2020.
