The conference will look back on how the CSA has helped shape modern American drug laws and policies and to look forward toward the direction these laws could and should take in the next 50 years. As part of this conference we are soliciting papers for the February 22 scholarship workshop. Junior scholars are encouraged to submit, and will be paired with a senior scholar to review and discuss the paper. Each paper should reflect on the past, present or future of the Controlled Substances Act and drug policy in the United States. Participants should have a draft to discuss and circulate by February 10. The papers will be gathered and published in a symposium edition of the Ohio State Journal of Criminal Law, a peer-reviewed publication. Participants should have a completed version to begin the publication process by March 15. Final papers may range in length from 5,000 words to 20,000 words. Deadline: Please submit a title and an abstract of no more than 300 words, to by August 15, 2019.
