Civil Right to Counsel 50 Years After Gideon — Washington, DC 

The University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law seeks submissions for its 2013 Annual Law Review Symposium, Expanding the Civil Right to Counsel: 50 Years After Gideon, which will take place in March 2013. Abstracts are due by noon Nov. 15, 2012.

This Symposium seeks to explore the legal and societal implications of creating a civil right to counsel. Panelists may also address the approaches to providing counsel to civil litigants that have been adopted in U.S. and international jurisdictions, and the impact to litigation outcomes in those jurisdictions.

Symposium submissions may examine the relative merits of creating a right to counsel in civil cases legislatively, through court rules, or pursuant to state constitutions. Participants in the Symposium will address the challenges to creation and implementation of a civil right to counsel through these mechanisms, as well as creation of a civil right to counsel through the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. The Law Review also seeks articles discussing the history of the Lassiter case and the prospects for a civil right to counsel under the U.S. Constitution. Panels may address discrete issues ranging from creation and implementation challenges to jurisdictional comparisons to constitutional construction of the right to counsel.

As an institution dedicated to promoting the study and practice of law in pursuit of social justice, we at the UDC Law Review seek to set the stage for an expansion of the right to counsel for civil litigants. Articles presented during the symposium will be collected for publication in the annual symposium issue of the UDC Law Review. Please submit abstracts to UDC Law Review Symposium Editor Megan Challender at mchallender [at] no later than 11:59 p.m. on November 15, 2012. Include an e-mail address, phone number, and mailing address where you can be reached. To be eligible for consideration, submissions must not be published elsewhere.

The Symposium will take place at a date to be determined in March 2013.

Call for Papers: Young International Lawyers Research Forum — Catania, Italy 

On January 24-25th The University of Catania will be hosting the 10th Young International Lawyers Research Forum. The Call for Papers is now open and the deadline for submission of abstracts is 24 November 2012.

The theme of the coming YIL Research Forum is A Lackland Law? Territory, Effectiveness and Jurisdiction in International and European Law. The international post-Westphalian order is traditionally founded on the notion of State territory. Territory is a basic element of the very existence of a State and is gen-erally understood as justification and limit of State sovereignty and jurisdiction.

Even so, the expanding scope of territoriality issues is still controversial and central to the concerns of international legal theories. Indeed, the relevant changes occurred over the last decades throughout the international community have challenged the very idea of territory, as well as its primordial meanings and functions in international law. The normative and institutional “global order” has gone through complex evolu-tions and the territory as a crucial factor of international ruling is gradually loosing its key role. Both writers and international practice confirm that international law always more tends to be applied in a “de-territorialised” way, moving beyond the material or legal preconditions of territoriality.

Law and Society — Power, Privilege, and the Pursuit of Justice — Boston, MA 

The Law and Society Association holds its annual meeting May 30—June 2, 2013, in Boston, MA. Proposals are due Dec. 4, 2012. The theme is Power, Privilege, and the Pursuit of Justice: Legal Challenges in Precarious Times.

The meeting’s theme aims to incite debate on the challenges that will define law and society over the next decade. The financial crisis that struck in 2008 still rends the economy, politics, law, and society. How will polarized politics, rapid technological change, and global shifts in economic power affect law and society over the next years, domestically and transnationally.

To envision the future, we invite participants to extend and rethink law and society’s past insights to engage a new and changing context. The Program Committee has listed a series of sub-themes in featured sessions and other panels with the aim of spurring cross-cutting discussions.

Call For Papers: Gideon v. Wainwright & The Right to the Assistance of Counsel – Iowa City, IA 

The University of Iowa College of Law and the Iowa Law Review will hold a concerning Gideon v. Wainwright. “The precise date of the symposium has not yet been decided, but it is expected that it will be held between the beginning of October and the middle of November.”

Those interested in participating should submit a one-paragraph summary of the paper they will present and a two-page abstract that outlines the structure and content of the paper in more detail.

Deadline for proposals: December 15, 2012.

The symposium is inspired by a half-century of experience with the Warren Court’s groundbreaking decision to expand indigent defendants’ right to state-appointed legal assistance. Although the event has been prompted by Gideon’s ruling regarding appointed assistance, the planners anticipate and hope that the scholarly papers and presentations will address an wide array of subjects surrounding the scope, meaning, substance, or efficacy of the Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to retained or appointed legal assistance. Both legal and nonlegal (e.g., social science) scholarship related to these topics is welcome. Papers may be theoretical/analytical and/or doctrinal in character or may be based on empirical research about the effect of Gideon on the administration of criminal justice.

Rough manuscripts will be due two weeks before the date of the symposium. Final drafts of symposium papers, which will be published in the Iowa Law Review, will be due shortly after the symposium, by a deadline that will be established by editors of the Review. Papers should be between 5,000 and 15,000 words in length. Submissions may be mailed to: Professor James J. Tomkovicz University of Iowa College of Law Iowa City, Iowa 52242 or may be sent by email to: james-tomkovicz[@] Inquiries about the symposium should be addressed to Professor Tomkovicz at the same email address.
