Call for Papers: Charleston Law Review Supreme Court Issue

The Charleston Law Review, the flagship journal of the Charleston School of Law, is currently accepting papers for its Supreme Court issue. This issue will address any topic before the Court in the October 2008 Term; in the alternative, the Charleston Law Review will accept submissions that address an aspect of the Court itself such as voting trends, case load, or an analysis of a particular Justice.Though we are a young school and journal, we have enjoyed the privilege of publishing some of our nation’s leading thinkers and have earned a reputation as being a professional publication that authors have enjoyed working with. In our second volume, for example, we garnered national recognition for publishing Senator and Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama and hosting a punitive damages symposium that featured leading thinkers such as Professor Anthony Sebok of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Professor Neil Vidmar of Duke Law School, Professor Keith Hylton of Boston University Law School, and Professor Mike Rustad of Suffolk University Law School. The symposium volume also included noted practitioners Ms. Elizabeth Cabraser and Mr. Victor Schwartz. In our general issues, we also published notable scholars such as Professor Walter Murphy of Princeton University and Professor John Yoo of University of California Berkeley Law School. Our first issue of Volume 3 featuresa foreword by Fourth Circuit Chief Judge Karen Williams.

The Supreme Court Preview will be published in late 2008, and we therefore ask that you submit your work by October 10th. For more information on this issue or the Charleston Law Review, please contact Editor-in-Chief Katie Fowler via email at kfowler [at] or via telephone at 803-309-5421.
