CALL FOR PAPERS

From the Crime Scene to the Courtroom: The Future of Forensic Science Reform

The Georgia State University Law Review invites legal scholars, advocates, attorneys, judges,
scientists, and other practitioners to submit pieces for its upcoming symposium issue on forensic
science reform. The symposium issue will address the challenges and opportunities facing
forensic science at this unique moment in time, including: avoiding and correcting wrongful
convictions; minimizing human error; technological advances in forensic science; ethical
conflicts; and the opportunity for states and localities to lead forensic science reform. Authors
are invited to submit pieces on these and other related topics.

Our format is flexible to encourage academics, advocates, attorneys, judges, scientists, and other
practitioners to participate. We welcome papers, essays, and symposium-length articles on
forensic science reform and related topics. Selected pieces will be published in Volume 34, Issue
4, in summer 2018. Because we will begin editing selected articles in February, articles are due
from authors by January 22, 2018 .

If you are interested in submitting a piece for our symposium issue, please email a short (no
longer than one page) abstract of your proposed piece to gsulawsymposium@gmail.com by
December 22 . Please write “Symposium issue abstract” as the subject line of your email and
include the approximate length of your piece.
