Call for Papers – New York Law Generally and Impact of 9/11/01 on NY Law

The editors of the Pace Law Review invite proposals from scholars, researchers, practitioners, and professionals for contributions to our third annual issue on New York law, slated for publication in Spring 2011.

In the past, this book has examined a wide range of topics in New York law, including education, immigration, land use, and criminal procedure. Next year will mark the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. We encourage authors to consider how the events of 9/11 have affected the legal landscape in New York State. For example, articles may address how 9/11 has influenced privacy, mass-tort, local security, health, and administrative law. Additionally, we encourage authors to consider proposals on other recent developments in New York law, unrelated to 9/11, and what they mean for our State.

Please submit proposals of no more than 500 words to plr [at] by September 1, 2010. We welcome proposals for articles, essays, and book reviews. All proposals should include the author’s name, title, institutional affiliation, contact information, and should concern issues related to the subject-matter described above. Book review proposals should also include: (a) the title and publication date of the book proposed for review; (b) a description of the importance of the book to the general topic; and (c) any other information relevant to the book or proposed review (e.g. the reviewer’s expertise or any relationship with the author). Authors are also welcome, but not required, to submit a CV. We expect to make publication offers by September 15, 2010. Completed manuscripts will be due November 1, 2010.

Best regards,
